Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness

Through its Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP), FEMA enables communities located near U.S. Army chemical warfare agent stockpile sites to protect their residents by strengthening their ability to prepare for, respond to and recover from a chemical emergency. CSEPP will continue until the chemical stockpile sites are destroyed.

Visit the CSEEP Portal for emergency planning, training, public outreach and education, exercises, medical preparedness and response, public alert and notification and communications.

About U.S. Army Chemical Stockpiles

Chemical destruction activities continue in the two remaining U.S. Army chemical weapons stockpiles in Colorado and Kentucky. FEMA’s regional and headquarters CSEPP staff members work with state and local partners to assess their response capabilities in protecting the people who live and work near an Army chemical stockpile depot in the event of an accident.

Some chemicals can be hazardous to humans and the environment if used or released improperly. Hazards can occur during production, storage, transportation, use or disposal of chemicals. Communities are at risk if a chemical is used unsafely or released in harmful amounts into the environment where residents live, work or play. Chemical manufacturers are one source of hazardous chemical materials, but there are many others, including service stations, hospitals and hazardous materials waste sites, such as in Love Canal in New York.
