Why does Altus have a Local Emergency Planning Committee?

In a news article, "Poor planning left Texas firefighters unprepared" http://yhoo.it/17pGeo0

"Known as the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, the law requires companies to tell emergency responders about the hazardous chemicals stored on their properties. But even when companies do so, the law stops there: After the paperwork is filed, it is up to the companies and local firefighters, paramedics and police to plan and train for potential disasters."

Altus and Jackson County have a Local Emergency Planning Committee that meets quarterly.

Won't you join in the planning process?
