35,000 emergency protection kits are being handed out to Madison County residents and businesses in conjunction with the neutralization of chemical nerve agents early in 2020 at the Blue Grass Army Depot. 

The kits themselves, termed shelter-in-place kits, consist of a plastic liner, scissors and duct tape. 

The concept is to completely seal off a room from airborne toxins, including hazardous chemicals. 

Dustin Heiser of Blue Grass Chemical Activity, which handles the transportation and handling the gas is leading the effort to disperse the kits in case of an accidental release of the agents.
