West 2

West 2 (W2):

 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).

West 2 (W2): W2 is a zone that only has a couple of houses but does have a high daytime population because The Pueblo Memorial Airport sits half in this zone.  The people that work in the area are briefing annually on how to evacuate away from the Depot and most of these businesses have a Business Continuity Plan.  If your business is inside this zone and you would like more information, please call us @ 583-6222 and we will visit you and/or your staff to talk preparedness anytime!
