Description:
Local Emergency Planning Committees are quasi-governmental bodies, generally at the county or municipal level, in the United States. They do not function in actual emergency situations, but attempt to identify and catalogue potential hazards, identify available resources, mitigate hazards when feasible, and write emergency plans. When an actual emergency occurs, the materials are made available to the Incident Commander. According to the National Response Plan (NRP) the initial response to an emergency incident or disaster is by local officials. The role of the LEPC is to anticipate and plan the initial response for foreseeable disasters in their jurisdiction.

The abbreviation LEPC is also sometimes used in reference to the Large Electron-Positron Collider, though it is usually abbreviated LEP.

A Local Emergency Planning Committee oversees and administers the Citizen Corps Council through their Education and Training Committee. The Local Emergency Planning Committee is composed of representatives of various Police, Fire, EMS, Hospitals, Public Health, Private Industry, Red Cross, Salvation Army, Military, Coast Guard, RACES Radio, Colleges Private Ambulance Services, Offices of Emergency Management, and the Public.
