The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) works closely with communities around the nation's remaining chemical weapons stockpiles. Since the program began in 1988, state and local emergency management officials have teamed with the Army and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to improve their ability to protect you. This partnership has helped these communities by enhancing emergency plans and providing chemical accident response equipment and warning systems.
Communities are Better Prepared Because of CSEPP
Chemical stockpile emergency preparedness exercises are held in communities surrounding the remaining chemical weapons stockpiles each year. The communities and states join the Army and FEMA to practice keeping the public safe in the unlikely event of a chemical stockpile accident. CSEPP training gives emergency responders - such as police officers, firefighters and emergency medical teams - skills and knowledge they can use every day.
