Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

Manchester Local Emergency Planning Committee

The Manchester Local Emergency Planning Committee (MLEPC) works to identify chemical hazards in the community, develop emergency plans in case of an accidental release, and look for ways to prevent chemical accidents.


In accordance with the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA), The Manchester Local Emergency Planning Committee (MLEPC) will encourage and support emergency planning for responding to all hazards and provide local governments and the public with information to use for planning and response.


  1. Understanding risks posed by chemicals.
  2. Managing those risks.
  3. Reducing those risks.
  4. Ensuring the broadest possible public representation in the decision-making process.
  5. Ensuring that an emergency response plan lays out potential local hazards, response capabilities and procedures to follow in an emergency. The planning process may identify opportunities for reducing risk.


Please follow the TIER 2 Instructions to submit your Tier II report(s) to both the State of New Hampshire and the City of Manchester as required to meet SARA Tile III, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act reporting requirements.
