The Local Emergency Planning Committee of Dubois County will have their next meeting at 1 pm tomorrow (Wednesday November 8th) in the Pfaffenweiler room located at Jasper City Hall.
In 1986, Congress enacted the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act. The law provides for emergency response planning to cope with the accidental release of toxic chemicals into the air, land and/or water.
To carry out the provisions of this law, the Dubois County Emergency Planning Committee was organized. An important goal of this committee is to increase public knowledge of; and provide better access to, information about the presence of hazardous materials in the community.
This committee is dedicated to providing the community with instructions on how to respond in the event of an accidental release of hazardous materials into the air, land and or water.
This committee is composed of members from Local & State Government, Environmental, Health, Media, Fire, Police, EMS, Industry, Hospital, Community, and Transportation.
Once again the Local Emergency Planning Committee of Dubois County will have their next meeting at 1 o’clock tomorrow afternoon in the Pfaffenweiler room located at Jasper City Hall.
