Abstract : The purpose of this Emergency Response Concept Plan is to present the conceptual basis for developing emergency response programs for the Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program. It presents a plan and general guidance for U.S. Army personnel, community groups and other involved local, state and federal agencies agencies to follow in the subsequent development of such programs. The concepts presented are comprehensive in scope, but are not intended to represent definitive criteria for emergency program development. Rather this plan serves to identify important issues and key components of emergency response for chemical munitions accidents and to facilitate the interaction needed to build effective programs for public protection.
