Event description

Description

Planning for and responding to disasters that affect drinking water and wastewater systems is critical. Participants will be introduced to the various natural and man-made (accidental or intentional) disasters to which water and wastewater systems may be vulnerable and the potential effects of disasters. Participants will be guided through portions of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Response Protocol Toolbox (RPTB) to identify steps in the response and recovery processes. Case studies on a variety of disaster incidents, as well as hypothetical situations for water and wastewater incidents are examined. Participants are also given the opportunity to practice developing a disaster response plan for a disaster.

FEMA now requires all participants to obtain a FEMA Student ID number. Participants can sign up for their student ID number by going to: https://cdp.dhs.gov/femasid/register
