When Disaster Strikes, the BCREPC is Ready to Support and Protect our Communities
Planning and implementing a regional response to disasters and emergencies on Cape Cod and Nantucket happens cohesively through the cooperative efforts of the Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee (BCREPC).
The initial impetus for the Committee arose when local municipalities realized the advantage of having a regional coordinated approach to municipal compliance with the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act, also known as SARA Title III. As the program demonstrated success and relationships were developed with emergency response stakeholders, the role of the Committee expanded to “all hazards” emergency coordination in order to address homeland security, meteorological events, public health matters, and regional sheltering issues that affect the region.
All fifteen communities on Cape Cod and, in addition, Nantucket, are represented on the BCREPC. The Committee meets regularly to hone their skills and strategize to address all types of emergencies.
