Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)


Under the 1986 Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, communities are required to establish an LEPC to develop responses for chemical emergencies. In Milton, the LEPC has expanded its functions to work with the Emergency Management Department and to get involved in planning for all emergencies, either natural or man-made. Representatives of municipal government and interested community organizations identify potential hazards and emergencies and prepare for them.

Activities include monthly planning meetings; reviews of the Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan, the Hazardous Materials Response Plan, and the Infectious Disease Plan; assistance with the LEPC certification process; development of emergency guidelines for residents, town agencies, elderly housing facilities and public and private schools; and participation in table-top exercises and drills.

The LEPC is chaired by Lt. Charles Caputo. The Community Right to Know Coordinator is Deputy Fire Chief Brian Linehan.
