PLEPCs serve a crucial role in ensuring the safety of the public when it comes to living and working around hazardous materials. The Cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and the Counties of James City and York established a regional Local Emergency Planning Committee concerning hazardous material and emergency response plans as well as: - Devise, observe and critique regional emergency operations excises annually; - Educate the public about risks from accidental and routine releases of chemicals, and work with facilities to minimize such risks within the region; - Involve necessary local businesses in the effort to minimize risks of accidental and routine release of chemicals in the region; - Encourage hazardous materials training of public and quasi-public personnel within the region.
