Currently the SERC consists of fourteen members appointed by the Governor representing state and local government organizations, private industry, and general public.  The mission of the SERC is, "Protect the citizens of the State of Nevada against the negative effects of hazardous materials."

The main functions of the SERC include: coordinate and supervise the activities of the Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs); ensure each LEPC has an approved Hazardous Materials Emergency Response Plan; collect chemical inventory reports; provide funds through grants, and process requests from the public for information.
