Emergency Management/CSEPP

Madison County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) and Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) support disaster preparedness, response and recovery from disasters in Madison County.

CSEPP was authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1985 to provide emergency preparedness and maximum protection to communities near chemical weapons stockpiles in the unlikely event of a chemical emergency at stockpile sites. From the original nine sites, only two remain: Pueblo, Colorado and Madison County, Kentucky. For decades, about 2% of the United States’ original stockpile of chemical agents has been safely stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot in special bunkers called igloos. The safe destruction of these chemical agents is estimated to be completed by the end of 2023.

Until program completion, the funding provided by CSEPP gives Madison County tools and resources to respond to a chemical emergency. These resources also prepare our citizens for other hazards, such as as severe weather emergencies.
