BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health’s Chemical Emergency Preparedness Program has been awarded funds from the Franklin County Chemical Emergency Preparedness Advisory Council (CEPAC) for services rendered during 2016.

The Chemical Emergency Preparedness Advisory Council (CEPAC) provides a professional network of individuals who help provide training, exercises and information to industry, responders and the public with regards to chemical awareness and safety.
