Abstract : As requested, we reviewed the Army's 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 Alabama's program; and (3) Calhoun County's opposition to the chemical stockpile disposal facility that the Army plans to build at the Anniston Army Depot.
