Title: It's not over in October: A guide for local emergency planning committees. Implementing the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (SARA title 3)

The purpose of the booklet is to offer suggestions to Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) to help them implement Title III; it is not a comprehensive guide to running an LEPC. The booklet draws on the experience of those LEPCs that have developed comprehensive plans as well as on the experience of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the states, the Chemical Manufacturers Association (CMA), other industry and trade associations, and public interest groups. It is intended to help LEPCs establish and maintain their momentum in meeting the Title III mandate and to address some possible implementation problems.
