The Northern Kentucky Emergency Planning Committee (NKEPC) is a federally mandated entity composed of state and local officials, business representatives and members of the press.

The role of the NKEPC is to form a partnership with local governments and industries as a resource for enhancing hazardous materials preparedness. Local governments are responsible for the integration of hazmat planning and response within their jurisdiction. This includes ensuring the local hazard analysis adequately addresses hazmat incidents; incorporating planning for hazmat incidents into the local emergency management plan and annexes; assessing capabilities and developing hazmat response capability using local resources, mutual aid and contractors; training responders; and exercising the plan.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the NKEPC, fill out the APPLICATION FOR APPOINTMENT. To fill it out, visit:
