Southeast 1


Southeast 1 (SE1): 

 The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) is a federally funded program of the local, state, and federal agencies to enhance emergency preparedness in areas near stockpile sites including the Pueblo Chemical Depot. Until the entire stockpile is destroyed CSEPP will remain to ensure protection  is provided to the public and the environment that surround each stockpile site.

A function of CSEPP emergency planning is the identification of areas that could be affected by an accident at PCD. The areas that surround the Depot are divided into Emergency Planning Zones call the Immediate Response Zone (IRZ) and Protective Action Zone (PRZ).



Southeast 1 (SE1):  The 2010 Census showed the SE1 zone had a population of nearly 400 people.  The community of Boone is in this zone.  There is a Migrant School and a daycare facility in this zone.  Boone is a close knit community and is actually unincorporated from the County.  Boone has it's own town council, fire department, and Mayor - among other things.  CSEPP has enjoyed being part of this community for years and joins the town during picnics and other events.

EVACUATION INFORMATION:

During an evacuation order, it is good to have two routes away from your home.  Do you have two planned in the event of an emergency?  If you live in this zone and are directed by emergency officials to evacuate because of a chemical event.  Here are a few things you should know:

ü  Take an evacuation recommendation seriously – gather people and pets and leave the area.

ü  Take a battery-powered radio with extra batteries.

ü  Tune to the Emergency Alert System (EAS) station, KCCY 96.9 FM.

ü  Take your emergency supplies kit and prescription medications

ü  Close and lock your home or business.

ü  Do not attempt to pick up children from school or daycare. School officials have plans in place to care for children during emergencies.

ü  If evacuating because of a hazardous materials accident, keep vehicle windows closed. Turn off the heater/air conditioner and close the vents.

ü  Follow evacuation routes away from the hazard.

ü  Do not return until officials say it is safe.
