Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) Support

 

 

ASG emergency response specialists developed a comprehensive hazard response and recovery plan to aid regional emergency management personnel from a four-county Local Emergency Planning Committee to enhance their implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986. The plan boosted coordination and integration of the all hazards material response activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the capability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from local and regional incidents in a NIMS-compliant manner. ASG facilitators led key stakeholders in an HSEEP-compliant advanced tabletop exercise to evaluate and synchronize both individual capabilities and groups of interdependent functions among relevant stakeholders.

 

ASG has a proven track record of providing robust, escalating, cutting-edge plan development, training and exercises for LEPC’s and community first responders. Our staff is intimately familiar with the:

 

  • Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA) in compliance with sections 301 and 303;
  • National Response Framework;
  • DHS Target Capabilities;
  • National Incident Management System;
  • Presidential Policy Directive 8; and the
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Whole Community approach for planning, organizing, training and equipping all-hazards response capabilities in diverse response agencies (Fire, Law Enforcement, EMS, Emergency Management, Hospitals, etc.).

Local Emergency Planning Committee Support

All Hazard Technological Assesments Specifically Tailored to a Community

Local Emergency Planning CommitteesASG helps communities identify and analyze toxic industrial chemical (TIC) and toxic industrial material (TIM) risks to include all industrial facilities and transportation activities in the local area.

ASG applies a critical-node analysis to response and recovery procedures to identify vulnerabilities and mitigation measures.

 

  • Identify threats and develop a comprehensive hazard inventory using EPA reports, NRC and State Licenses, railroad, and shipping channel commodity flow studies, nuclear power plants
  • Model potential releases from industrial facilities and transportation sources to estimate consequences
  • Determine probability of trigger events from natural disasters, accidents, and man-made incidents incorporating historical weather probability data
  • Analyze plans and procedures from key personnel,
    organizations and process owners
  • Calculate severity by determining casualty profiles for each scenario
  • Conduct critical-node analysis of response and recovery procedures to identify shortfalls and limiting factors
  • Develop mitigation measures to improve preparedness

 

Exercises

ASG uses a combination of training, coaching and evaluation through a scenario designed to enhance emergency responder capabilities and LEPC plan validation.

 

  • Over 800 scenarios facilitated
  • Trained over 2537 first responders
  • Experts on field detection and analytical equipment
  • Licensed/certified professionals
  • NIMS compliant
  • HSEEP compliant
