Local Emergency Planning Committee

Emergency Response Plan Template

Template Revision Date: June 2013

Introduction to the Oregon Local Emergency Planning Committee

Emergency Response Plan Template

About The Template

This template has been developed to assist Oregon’s Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) in complying with United States Code (USC) Title 42 Chapter 116 Subchapter I, § 11003 (a-g) of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, which identifies requirements for LEPC emergency response plans, addressing releases of hazardous materials.

While the template provides for uniformity in plan development across Oregon LEPCs, use of it is not mandatory. The template is intended to be a resource for LEPC members in accomplishing their mandates. LEPCs have the option to develop their emergency response plans independent of this resource.

Using The Template

Throughout the template, the end user will see highlighted text. The highlighted text will serve one of two purposes. First, there is highlighted text that provides the user with information, such as what part of EPCRA is being addressed by the particular section of the template. This text can be deleted during the process of populating the template with local specific information, or it can be incorporated into the emergency plan as reference.

Other highlighted text provides locations where local, specific information related to response, is to be inserted, either directly into the document, or by way of the appendices. In any case, the highlighted text can be removed or modified and retained, at the will of the end user.

In its original form, the template provides the opportunity to cover each of the nine planning elements of EPCRA. Using the document in its original form and inserting local operating procedures into the highlighted areas, will provide for a completed LEPC emergency plan draft, ready for review by the LEPC membership.

No Restrictions for Use

This template is an “open source” style document. Once downloaded by the end user, modifications, edits, additions, deletions, etc. can be made, to any extent, and in any form the end user desires.
