New Mexico State Emergency Response Commission (SERC)

SERC Responsibilities

The Governor designates the members of the SERC. The SERC in turn appoints Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs). The SERC supervises and coordinates the activities of the LEPCs, establishes procedures for receiving and processing public requests for information collected under EPCRA, and reviews local emergency response plans. The LEPC membership must include, at a minimum, local officials including police, fire, civil defense, public health, transportation, and environmental professionals, as well as representatives of facilities subject to the emergency planning requirements, community groups, and the media. The LEPCs must develop an emergency response plan, review it at least annually, and provide information about chemicals in the community to citizens.
