Pacific County addressing hazardous materials in 2 workshops
Pacific County Emergency Management will be holding two Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Plan workshops this month on Friday, June 20th.
The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act requires each county to adopt a Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Plan. Currently Pacific County has a plan in place, but federal funding allows them to revise and develop a more comprehensive and effective plan.
The workshops will be held at multiple locations:
• 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. – Pacific County Courthouse Annex, County Commissioners’ Meeting Room, 1216 Robert Bush Drive, South Bend
• 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. – South Pacific County Administration Facility, Meeting Room A, 7013 Sandridge Road, Long Beach.
The purpose of the updated plan will be to demonstrate local commitment to reduce risks from hazardous materials. Local feedback is essential to ensure that the updated plan is relevant to community risks and needs.
The public is welcome to submit feedback. If you would like to comment, but are unable to attend, you may email them to email@example.com by 5:00 p.m. on June 19th, 2014.
