Local Emergency Planning Committee

The Ravalli County LEPC was established in 2018 by the Board of County Commissioners of Ravalli County.  The purpose of the LEPC is to carry out for Ravalli County and its political subdivisions those responsibilities required of the LEPC pursuant to SARA Title III, the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986, including:

  • Developing and maintaining a hazardous material emergency response plan for Ravalli County and its political subdivisions;
  • Receiving and storing hazardous material information (Tier II Reports) from facilities within Ravalli County and processing requests from the public under the community right-to-know provisions of SARA Title III regarding chemicals and hazardous materials; and
  • Establishing provisions for public notification of LEPC activities.
  • Performing other duties as requested or directed in writing from the Montana State Emergency Response Commission.

The DRAFT Hazardous Materials Emergency Plan has been reviewed by our LEPC and is available for public comment.  A subcommittee is in the process of reviewing the draft plan, accepting and reviewing public comments, and incorporating any proposed revisions.  Comments can be submitted via email to oem@rc.mt.gov, or by mail to Ravalli County OEM, 205 Bedford St Ste J, Hamilton, MT 59840.  The deadline for comments is November 16, 2018.  The DRAFT plan may be viewed by clicking on this LINK.

The next scheduled LEPC Meeting is Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at 12:30 pm at the Commissioners Meeting Room, 215 S 4th St., Hamilton, Montana
