Who does the Emergency Planning?
 

Any business which uses, manufactures, stores or transports hazardous materials is required to have procedures for safe handling of these materials, as well as, emergency response procedures.  The Talbot County LEPC reviews and updates the hazardous materials plan.  Fire departments and other response agencies are also required to have procedures for hazardous materials spills.  Plans are reviewed annually, exercised and updated as required to meet the requirements of the law and to adapt to changes necessary to planning for and responding to hazardous materials emergencies.
