Authorized by Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), the Emergency Planning & Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) was enacted by Congress as the national legislation on community safety. This law is designed to help local communities protect public health, safety, and the environment from chemical hazards.

To implement EPCRA, Congress requires each state to appoint a State Emergency Response Commission (SERC). The SERCs are required to divide their states into Emergency Planning Districts and to name a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) for each district.

Broad representation by fire fighters, health officials, government and media representatives, community groups, industrial facilities, and emergency managers ensures that all necessary elements of the planning process are represented.

The Rockland County Youth Bureau Advisory Board, created in 1974, provides a link between the NYS Office of Children and Family Services Division of Youth and Rockland County government. Our 15-member board consists of youth and adult members who work together to advocate for youth, for the development of services and strategies that address locally identified youth problems and needs, and for responding to opportunities to address those needs.
