The Greater Houston Local Emergency Planning Committee is a federally mandated entity comprised of government, business, and community members. Our role is to form a partnership with these resources to enhance hazardous materials awareness and preparedness.
Under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) are to assist in developing an emergency response plan, review these plans annually, and provide information about chemicals in the community to our community.
This is your chance to make a difference in our community -- to build networks and serve as a link between citizens, industry, and government in emergency planning and preparedness for the community. Everyone matters.
Come join one of our bi-monthly meetings generally held the last Wednesday of every odd month at the American Red Cross, 2700 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX. Lunch provided for those who let us know you are coming. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Our meetings are free and open to the public.
The GHLEPC is a registered 501c3 government associated charitable organization. We depend on you for funding. More than 95% of all funds go towards increasing awareness and providing education, training and exercises at no cost to the community. A great value. You may mail or better yet, bring with you your donation to any meeting. As a donor you will receive an official acknowledgment letter and a year-end statement provided in January to use for tax purposes
