Fire & Police Department Involvement
Per our By Laws the Nogales Fire Department and the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department also have a vote. The department will send a representative from their department to the meetings. This was done to accommodate the often difficult schedules of an individual.

Nogales Fire Department: The Nogales Fire Department was a key player in the development of a Bi-National Plan between Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora.

Santa Cruz Sheriff: The Santa Cruz Sheriff's Department has been a big supporter of the LEPC and has been highly involved in preparing for a variety of disasters. A deputy was assigned to participate in a Haz-Mat Technicians course and plans are to send more deputies through this course in the future.

Community Involvement
Along with the voting members there has been an increased interest by the community in the LEPC. There have been members of a variety of agencies that have participated in the past few months.
