Roles & Responsibilities


The role of the LEPC is to form a partnership between state and local governments, responders, industry, and the public as an enhancement for mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery, planning, exercising, and training.

In addition to its formal duties, the LEPC serves as the focal point in the community for information and discussion about emergency planning, training, and exercises. Residents may ask the LEPC questions about hazards and risk management actions.

Tier II Chemical Inventory


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, facilities covered by Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requirements must submit an Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Form to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), and the local fire department annually.

These forms, known as Tier II reports in the state of Wyoming are kept on file in the Campbell County Emergency Management Agency Office.

Filing Tier II's - Wyoming is now a One-Stop Shop!


 

If you are filing a Tier II report for the first time, please note that you are required to report "the presence of the chemical in a reportable quantity" within 60 days of it's first arrival.

Following the initial filing, you are required to file Tier II reports by March 1st of each calendar year for the previous 12 month calendar year (January-December).

There are no filing fees charged in Wyoming.

Beginning in 2017, Wyoming's SERC has changed the rules...no longer do you have to file with the SERC, LEPC's and Fire Departments with Jurisdiction!  Now, you just use the state's on-line portal and they take care of getting it distributed to all three entities.

If you have questions, please contact Campbell County Emergency Management at (307) 686-7477
