Roles & Responsibilities


The role of the LEPC is to form a partnership between state and local governments, responders, industry, and the public as an enhancement for mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery, planning, exercising, and training.

In addition to its formal duties, the LEPC serves as the focal point in the community for information and discussion about emergency planning, training, and exercises. Residents may ask the LEPC questions about hazards and risk management actions.

Tier II Chemical Inventory


According to the Environmental Protection Agency, facilities covered by Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requirements must submit an Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Form to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), and the local fire department annually.

These forms, known as Tier II reports in the state of Wyoming are kept on file in the Campbell County Emergency Management Agency Office.

Filing Tier II's in Campbell County

If you are filing a Tier II report for the first time, please note that you are required to report the presence of the chemical in a reportable quantity within 60 days of it's first arrival.  

Following the initial filing, you are required to file Tier II reports by March 1st of each calendar year for the previous 12 month calendar year (January-December).

There are no filing fees charged in Wyoming.

Both the State of Wyoming and Campbell County LEPC require all Tier II's be filed in electronic format, utilizing the Tier 2 Submit software available from EPA



WYOMING IS CHANGING THE WAY YOU FILE TIER II's BEGINNING WITH THE 2016 REPORTING YEAR.  


The reports due by March 1st, 2017 will filed through a "One-Stop" electronic portal.

The Wyoming SERC has changed the method for filing TIER II reports. They have contracted with Aristatek to process TIER II reports. Wyoming does not charge a filing fee.

The TIER II Submit portal is: https://wyo.tieriiportal.aristatek.com. You only need to make one submittal to this link and Aristatek will distribute to the required parties.  That means, file in the portal, and then the state will distribute your Tier II(s) to the LEPC's and Fire Department's with Jurisdiction.

For assistance using the TIER II portal, contact AristaTek technical support at at: 877-912-2200 option #2 or support@aristatek.com.
