Benefits of a Local Emergency Planning Committee
Accessibility of the SARA Title III
Hazardous Substance Information
Section 324 of the Emergency Planning and Community right to know act, also known as SARA Title III (super-fund amendments and re-authorization act of 1986, PL99-499) requires that public notice annually informing the public of the means to access information, about extremely hazardous substances that are, manufactured, stored and used within their community. Follow-up emergency notices may subsequently be issued.
Accordingly, information concerning LEPC meetings, SARA Title III hazardous materials planning which is included in our Mitchell County Emergency Operations Response Plans, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) Hazardous Chemical inventory forms, listing extremely hazardous substances manufactured, stored, or used within Mitchell County can be obtained during normal business hours by contacting:
Mitchell County Kansas Emergency Management
114 S. Campbell Ave.
Beloit, KS 67420
The Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA) establishes the LEPC as a forum at the local level for discussions and a focus for action in matters pertaining to all-hazards planning. LEPCs also help to provide local governments and the public with information about all-hazards in their communities.
