Who We Are

The Kanawha Putnam Emergency Planning Committee (KPEPC) serves Kanawha and Putnam Counties, West Virginia. The region, centered along the Kanawha River, is a heavily industrialized area sometimes called the "Chemical Capital of the World."


Our Vision:    A community prepared to respond to all types of emergencies.

Our Mission:  The KPEPC brings together resources in Kanawha and Putnam counties to create a common plan for managing community emergencies.
