News Release
Mid-Valley Local Emergency Planning Committee - 02/06/18

The Mid-Valley Local Emergency Planning Committee invites the public to learn about local plans for community safety in the event of a hazardous chemical release incident on Tuesday February 20, 2018, from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. at Albany Fire Station 11, 611 Lyon Street SE. Light refreshments will be served and a chance to win 2 tickets to the OSU/Utah game will be offered.

The Linn and Benton Counties LEPC includes police and fire personnel, emergency planners, and representatives from health, education, news media, hospitals, government, environmental groups, the public, and local facilities that have extremely hazardous chemicals on site. The main goal of the LEPC is to work together to be prepared in the event of a hazardous chemical release.

The public is encouraged to attend to learn what the committee does and the benefits of having one in the community. Speakers at this year's meeting will discuss crisis management and disposal of household hazardous materials.
