Expo_sign_200Community Right-to-Know was the theme for the first EPCRA EXPO held by the Region 5/6 LEPC. The event was held March 13th at the Fremont City Auditorium and was open to the public. There were 15 federal, state and local response agencies that set up information booths and provided literature and giveaways for people to take home. Even the participating response agencies got the opportunity to network and share information with each other.

EPCRA (Emergency Planning/Community Right-to-Know Act) is part of the EPA SARA Title III program. Certain firms must provide the public with information about hazardous materials on their premises. These firms are known as TIER II facilities; a complete list of their names can be found on our website at LEPC.

CF Industries and Hormel, both located in Fremont, were 2 of the Dodge County co-sponsors for this event.
The Region 5/6 LEPC and Cargill participated in a similar event that was held on March 31st in Blair at the South Elementary School. This program was organized by the Washington County Extension Office. A special feature at both events was the display of the Region 5/6 “model city” which was set-up to simulate disaster scenarios in Fremont and Blair.
