The Dubois County Local Emergency Planning Committee is holding a meeting in November.
In 1986, Congress enacted the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act, also known as the Superfund Amendments & Reauthorization Act, or SARA; which is a law that provides emergency response planning to cope with the accidental release of toxic chemicals into the air, land, or water.
The Dubois County Emergency Planning Committee was organized to carry out this law’s provisions. 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, as well as provide the community with instructions on how to respond in the event of an accidental release of hazardous materials into the air, land, or water.
The Local Emergency Planning Committee of Dubois County will have its next meeting at 1 PM, on November 8th, in the Pfaffenweiler room in the Jasper City Hall located at 610 Main Street.
