The revisions add some new data elements and revise some existing data elements. The rule becomes effective on January 1, 2014, and facilities must comply with the new requirements on the Tier II inventory form starting reporting year 2013, which is due by March 1, 2014. Some states may have specific requirements for reporting and submission the Tier II inventory form and/or the state reporting form or format. EPA suggests that facilities contact their state for reporting requirements for their state.

Local Emergency Planning Committee #12 is dedicated to serving the responders of its 30 member towns in east-central Vermont through planning and preparation activities for incidents of all kinds, and to helping educate the citizens of the region with safety information and tips on emergency preparedness.

The LEPC is not a response agency and does not replace any local response agency, but rather is meant to help in local and regional emergency planning so that plans are coordinated and exercised. The LEPC also helps to facilitate training and serves as a clearinghouse for emergency information. LEPC bimonthly meetings serve as useful venues for sharing information, increasing networking among responders, and providing educational programs.

Be safe.
