Title: Successful practices in Title III implementation. Chemical emergency preparedness and prevention, technical assistance bulletin. Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma; State of Connecticut; Cumberland County, Maine; Wyandotte County, Kansas. Series 6, Number 5

The report is one in a series of bulletins EPA is issuing to provide examples of implementation programs and strategies of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986, known as Title III, that are innovative or have proven effective. The purpose of these bulletins is to share information on successful practices with Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs), State Emergency Response Commissions (SERCs), fire departments, and other Title III implementing agencies throughout the country in the hope that such information will prove useful to other SERCs and LEPCs as their programs develop and evolve. Elements from the programs featured here may be transferable to other programs in similar communities or with similar situations. The bulletins provide information on a variety of practices - for example, planning, compliance, information management, hazard analysis, and outreach. The particular topics covered in each LEPC or SERC profile are listed at the upper right hand corner of the first page of the profile for easy reference.
