Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)



The LEPC members serve as a resource for citizens to learn about hazardous substances, emergency planning, as well as health and environmental risks in our community.

The Ottawa County LEPC is composed of community members including local elected officials, law enforcement, emergency management, fire departments, environmental organizations, public health professionals, media and representatives of facilities that handle, use or store hazardous materials.

The LEPC meets the third Wednesday of odd numbered months at various locations throughout the County. The public is welcome to attend the meetings. Please contact the Ottawa County LEPC at (616) 738-4051 for more information.
