CSEPP Installs Zone Signs in Estill
The Estill County Emergency Management Agency (EMA)/ Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) is beginning a CSEPP Zone Sign project. You will begin to notice signs being placed throughout the county by County and State Highway Departments.
We have encouraged residents for years to know what their CSEPP Zone is in case of a chemical emergency at the Blue Grass Army Depot. Should an accident occur at the Depot we will notify residents by their zone on what actions they need to take to keep themselves and their families safe. These signs are just another way for us to educate the community on what zone they are in.
Our hope is that these new signs will help residents know what zones they live, work or visit frequently. Knowing you zone is just part of having a Family Emergency Plan. We encourage everyone to create an Emergency Plan and build a Disaster Kit.
