State Emergency Response Commission (SERC)
The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 mandated that each state Governor appoint a SERC. This Commission can be comprised of a single agency or representatives of various groups. In accordance with this law, Governor John R. McKernan, Jr., established by Executive Order the Maine SERC on April 13, 1987. The Director of the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) was appointed the Chair of the Commission. Eight others were appointed to serve on it.
In 1989, when the Maine Legislature codified the federal law, additional positions were added to the SERC.
