Abstract:

As requested, we reviewed the Armys Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program CSEPP for Alabama and Calhoun County. You were concerned that Alabama communities may not be prepared to respond to a chemical stockpile emergency, even though the Money allocated the state 46 million to enhance emergency preparedness. Our objectives were to assess 1 the funding and status of CSEPP in Alabama and Calhoun County 2 the impact of federal, state, and local management on Alabamas program and 3 Calhoun Countys opposition to the chemical stockpile disposal facility that the Army plans to build at the Anniston Army Depot.
