Go Back to Programs and Services
The Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee (BCREPC) was organized in 2002 to assist Cape Cod communities with preparation for intentional and unintentional hazardous materials emergencies and to ensure municipal compliance with the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act, also known as SARA Title III. As BCREPC has developed over the years, it has seen its role expand to “All Hazards” emergency planning to address homeland security, meteorological, and public health issues that may affect the region.
Sixteen communities on Cape Cod and Nantucket are represented on the BCREPC. Participating towns include Barnstable, Bourne, Brewster, Chatham, Dennis, Eastham, Falmouth, Harwich, Mashpee, Orleans, Provincetown, Sandwich, Truro, Wellfleet, Yarmouth and Nantucket.
Additionally, many private and public sector agencies also have membership on the committee including the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office, the Barnstable County Resource Development Office, Cape Cod Commission, Cape and Islands Chapter of the American Red Cross, Cape Cod Hospital, Falmouth Hospital,Army National Guard, Coast Guard, Cape Cod Medical Reserve Corps, Cape Cod Transit Authority, Eversource, National Grid, the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.
Chief Mark Foley of the Eastham Fire Department and Chief Ronald Fisette of the Wellfleet Police Department serve as the co-chairs of the REPC.
