What does the LEPC do for me?

You have the explicit right to know about hazardous chemical information. You can see and get copies of the

  • Tier 2 (chemical storage) reports
  • Facility emergency plans
  • Written follow-up reports
  • Regional emergency plans
  • Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)

Visit the Allen County Office of Homeland Security office during open hours.

If the MSDSs are for a chemical that involves trade secrets, the facility can choose not to provide this. This is a rare scenario. Most chemicals and chemical mixtures used at facilities are not trade secrets.

Any time a chemical emergency occurs in your area, the facility must notify you within a few moments and tell you how to respond.

The Allen County LEPC is always working to improve its public communication efforts.
