There are five noted occasions upon which this emergency plan shall be reviewed and/or modified. They are as follows:
Post Exercise: If, after a scheduled exercise of this emergency plan, a deficiency is detected by one of the participants, a subcommittee shall be established to review and amend that deficiency. These changes shall then be approved by the committee as a whole.
Post Incident: If, after an emergency incident, a deficiency is detected in this emergency plan, a subcommittee shall be established to review and amend that deficiency. Any changes made to the plan shall then be approved by the committee as a whole.
Annually: Every first week of April, or shortly thereafter, the submitted SARA 312 (Tier Two) reports shall be reviewed and any necessary changes shall be made to Section 1 of this plan (Extremely Hazardous Substance (EHS) Facility Identification) and Appendix A (EHS Facility Info) accordingly.
Committee Determination: If, at any other time, the committee determines that the plan should be reviewed, a subcommittee shall be established to do so. (This would include - but not be limited to - times when there is a significant personnel change in the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), a new road or exit goes into the county, etc.) Any proposed changes made by this subcommittee shall be reviewed and approved by the committee as a whole.
Regulatory Change: Whenever a change is made to an applicable state or federal regulation (i.e. spill reporting thresholds, release notification procedures, LEPC plan requirements, etc.), a subcommittee shall be established to determine what corresponding changes shall be made to the plan. Those recommendations shall be presented to the committee as a whole for approval.
Changes are to be submitted to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) annually by October 17.
