Emergency Management

Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act of 1986, communities are required to establish Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) to develop response plans for chemical emergencies.  In accordance with this legislation, the Town of West Boylston must identify locations where hazardous materials are stored, used and transported.  Our Emergency Plan is reviewed annually, tested and updated.  Because our LEPC members are part of our community, they are familiar with factors that affect public safety, the environment and the economy of the town.  This knowledge is employed as the plan is developed and tailored to the town's needs.

In addition to developing an emergency response plan, the LEPC receives information on hazardous chemical inventories and emergency releases.  All local facilities must supply this information and the LEPC will mke it available to the public upon request.  The LEPC establishes and publicizes the procedures for handling these request.
