Hazmat Incident Guidance for State, Local, Tribal, Territorial, and Private Sector Partners
This document has a significant emphasis on the role of LEPCs.
Local governments are responsible for integrating hazardous materials planning and response within their jurisdictions. This includes:
- Ensuring the local hazard analysis adequately addresses hazardous materials incidents;
- Incorporating planning for hazardous materials incidents into the local and tribal emergency plan and annexes;
- Assessing developing hazardous materials response capability using local resources, mutual aid and contractors;
- Training responders; and
Exercising the Plan.
It also suggests that communities adopt land use policies on the siting of facilities with hazardous materials in order to reduce risk.
