Arbor Day Event

The Fayette LEPC participated in the Arbor Day event at the University of Kentucky to provide preparedness information to those attending this event. The Fayette LEPC has participated in this annual event a number of years. Fayette LEPC members Robbie Francis, Rob Larkin, Gregg Bayer, and Steve Jackson staffed our table. We were fortunate to have the assistance of Jacob Francis, Robbie’s son, Aidan Larkin, Rob Larkin’s son, and Gregg Bayer’s wife, Melissa, whose help was invaluable. See our Photo Gallery for more pictures.

Welcome to LEPC

The primary mission of the Fayette Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is to develop and implement a community emergency response plan for releases of Extremely Hazardous Substances (EHS); provide an interface between facilities handling EHS and the public; and provide education for appropriate protective actions to the community.

Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA or SARA Title III) was passed by Congress in 1986. The state counterpart law for Kentucky is found in KRS Chapter 39. SARA Title III has two main purposes: it establishes authorities for emergency planning and prepardedness at the community and state level; and provides local governments and the public with information about hazardous chemicals in their community through reporting measures. Most importantly, SARA Title III has established new relationships among levels of government, industry, institutions, environmental groups, the press and citizens.


FREE Family Emergency Kits Available

The Fayette Local Emergency Planning has a limited number of family emergency kits available for use as fundraising items for local non-profit organizations. The kits include a NOAA weather radio, fire extinguisher, flashlight, batteries and other items that would be needed during the first 72 hours of a community emergency.

The kits are FREE, but your organization needs to apply for a kit. Send us an email, with the name, address and membership of your organization and how you would use the Fayette LEPC emergency kit in your activities.

The awards committee will review your application and make the award on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, please contact the public information officer for the Fayette LEPC, John Bobel, via email to: jbobel@lexingtonky.gov
