Chemical Weapons Stockpile: Changes Needed in the Management of the Emergency Preparedness Program.
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC NATIONAL SECURITY AND INTERNATIONAL A FFAIRS DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
In November 1985, the Congress directed the Department of Defense DOD through the Army to destroy the U.S. stockpile of lethal chemical agents and munitions and directed that the disposal program provide for the maximum protection of the environment, the public, and the personnel involved in disposing of the munitions. In 1988, the Army established CSEPP to help communities near the chemical stockpile storage sites enhance existing emergency management and response capabilities in the unlikely event of a chemical stockpile accident. Another focus of CSEPP is to enhance the emergency preparedness of the eight Army installations where the chemical stockpile munitions are stored. See app. II for the locations of the chemical stockpile storage sites.
