Local Emergency Planning Committee (L.E.P.C.) and Oil and Gas Emergency Action Plan Templates

 

lepc

The Weld County LEPC is focused on coordination and partnerships with local government and industry partners. Our goal is to develop a coordinated all- hazard planning team to help with risk based planning for our emergency operations plan.

The Oil and Gas industry has taken off in the last few years across Weld County. With the industry boom, the number of operators and associated business in Weld County has increased, and so has the risk for incidents in our county.

Weld County LEPC continues to work with local government, fire districts and industry partners to:

  • Identify risks and hazards to our community
  • Plan for the identified risks  
  • Identify response capabilities and gaps to response
  • Work with industry to identify how they can reduce risk at their facilities based on best practices and coordination with first responder agencies.

There are several new rules and regulation that have been adopted by the COGCC, EPA, and PHMSA over that past few years. This has changed the way LEPCs operate and how we as an LEPC stay compliant with EPCRA and communicate to our citizens about risks and planning. Risk and hazard analysis in planning has changed in recent years due to the use of technology, and because we now follow an all-hazards approach to planning. There are several computer programs that help us in planning, including CAMEO and P.E.A.C., that provide a worst case scenario model. While we strive to be consistent with these programs, it is also important to consistently share this information with all planning agencies. The outcome is a full understanding of our community’s risks and capabilities and strong relationships that will allow us to continue to work together and improve safety.

Sincerely,
Roy Rudisill,
Chair Weld County LEPC
