The Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) grant program is made available to the Ohio State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) via the U.S. Department of Transportations (DOT) Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). This is handled on behalf of the SERC by Ohio EMA. The HMEP grant program is intended to provide financial and technical assistance, as well as national direction to enhance state and local hazardous materials emergency planning and training. The HMEP grant program distributes fees collected from shippers and carriers of hazardous materials to Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) for local hazmat training and planning.
