Region 6 Local Emergency Planning Committee
Regional Tabletop Exercises Project

The Region 6 Local Emergency Planning Committee (hereafter also referred to as the LEPC) requests proposals from firms or individuals with emergency management, Homeland Security Exercise Evaluation Program (HSEEP) exercise design & facilitation, and hazardous materials planning and response experience.  The LEPC intends to contract with a qualified firm or individual to provide the services required to complete four (4) Tabletop Hazardous Materials Response exercises using two different scenarios based on products identified in the Region 6 LEPC Commodity Flow Study.
