The Victoria Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is designed to form an alliance between local government and industry partners as a resource to raise hazardous materials planning and preparedness levels. Planning also provides information and facilitates training for the first responders who are called upon to protect the public in the event of a chemical accident. The Victoria LEPC can assist in providing information on evacuation routes, Shelter-In-Place procedures, and other information as it relates to chemical hazards in the Victoria area.
