Community Awareness

The Community Awareness Subcommittee participates in outreach campaigns to educate the public regarding the purpose of the LEPC, steps to follow during a 'Shelter In Place' event and to create a greater public awareness of our city and the special needs of living in an industry-rich area.

The Deer Park LEPC provides a yearly calendar to Deer Park residents, listing local emergency information and also 'Shelter In Place' instructions.

Wally Wise Guy, the turtle mascot for the DPLEPC, attends local events and visits our elementary schools to teach children how to Shelter In Place.  To learn more about
