Effectiveness of Community Planning for Toxic Chemical Emergencies
Michael K. Lindell (au); Marna J. Meier (au)
An uncontrolled chemical release has the potential to inflict catastrophic damage on life and property. Responding to this threat, the Congress enacted the a law mandating establishment of Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) to develop community response plans for toxic chemical releases. This report, issued in 1991, addresses the problem that over two years past the submission deadline, only a minority of the communities in the U.S. had submitted the required plans. Results suggest that LEPCs are more effective if they can recruit an adequate number of members and supply them with “the tools for the job”. Recent hazard experience and community support also affect success. Illustrations.
