ASG emergency response specialists worked closely with the City of Portsmouth Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) to update the Portsmouth Local Emergency Response Plan to enhance their implementation of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986. The planning process included the review of the current hazardous material facilities (Tier II reporting), in order to update the inventory of hazardous materials that met the Tier II thresholds within the City of Portsmouth and an analysis of local responders’ preparedness to respond to industrial chemical releases within the City. The updated plan will assist local fire, emergency services and emergency management personnel to create a safer community by reducing risks and vulnerabilities and increasing capabilities where necessary to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from all hazardous materials incidents.
