The Bucks County Local Emergency Planning Committee was organized to implement the requirements of Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986. We are dedicated to enhancing community safety and preparedness through developing hazardous materials awareness, planning for hazardous materials emergency response and encouraging partnerships between the community and industry. We work for and with the emergency response organizations, industry and the community.
We are also responsible to carry out the provisions of Section 203 of the Pennsylvania Hazardous Material Emergency Planning and Response Act, Act 1990-165 within the geographical boundaries of Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Meetings are held 5 times a year and are open to the public. Unless otherwise stated, meetings are held at 9:00 am at the Bucks County EMA, 911 Freedom Way, Ivyland PA 18974.
We are pleased to announce the release of our new public emergency preparedness video – “Ready Bucks”. You can watch it on line using the link to the left or get a copy by emailing us a request with the “Contact Us” link on this site.
