LEPC Regional Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness Plan
The LEPC's Regional Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness Plan (RHMEPP) serves to coordinate the planning and response actions of the Mid-America Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). The plan provides an administrative framework for hazardous materials planning and response in the areas served by the Mid-America LEPC including Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte, and Ray counties and the city of Kansas City in Missouri, and Johnson, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties in Kansas.
The document serves as an emergency planning tool to facilitate an effective, coordinated, multi-jurisdictional response by all personnel during a hazardous materials emergency.
The document includes two components:
- The Basic Plan
- Appendix A: Hazard Analysis
The basic plan is available online, in PDF format (4.5 MB). The full LEPC plan is available for review, by appointment, at the Mid-America Regional Council offices during normal business hours.
To make an appointment to review the plan, please submit a written request to Mid-America LEPC,
