The Fort Bend County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) was formed in the summer of 1987 under the Federal Guidelines of SARA Title III (EPCRA) and the Texas Hazard Communications Act of 1986.
The LEPC works with city/county emergency management to plan emergency response for a chemical release from industrial facilities and transportation sources such as pipelines, rail cars, and tanker trucks.
Membership in the Fort Bend County LEPC comes from different organizations including industry, fire departments, emergency medical services, law enforcement, city/county emergency management, and county residents. This sharing of knowledge and resources maximizes the coordination of the LEPC.
The Chairman, Vice Chairman, and Secretary/Treasurer are all elected by the members of the LEPC. Pictured are the current Officers of the Fort Bend County LEPC:
Chairman: Raymond Engelhardt, Safety Specialist, NRG Energy
Vice Chairman: Shayne Carther, Safety Specialist, Fluor Corporation
Secretary/Treasurer: Denise Lee, EHS and Security Manager, John Crane Product Solutions
