CSEPP was developed to bring together federal, state and local government agencies to ensure public safety and that local agencies and communities are ready to handle any type of emergency. Since its inception, the primary goal of CSEPP has been to educate and enhance emergency preparedness in communities surrounding the chemical stockpile stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot. There are 10 counties in Kentucky which are effected by the stockpile. Madison County, where the Bluegrass Army Depot is located, and the northwest portion of Estill County are considered the Immediate Response Zones (IRZ). Areas in Clark, Estill, Fayette, Garrard, Jackson, Powell and Rockcastle are included in the Protective Action Zone (PAZ). Jessamine and Laurel Counties are considered Host Counties.
Laurel County, being a host county, has a primary function to assist citizens who may deployed to their county in the event of an accident at the Depot. Through CSEPP, Laurel County emergency responders receive critical training that enhances their skills and knowledge to better assist your community in times of disaster.
