The U.S. EPA Water Security Division will be hosting this free one-day workshop designed to build on the Cascadia Rising Exercise. It will include presentations from various entities, including water and wastewater, emergency management, fire and law enforcement, and transportation on their roles and repsonsibilities following a catastrophic event. It will also include a facilitated discussion involving an emergency response to a wide scale emergency that impacts numerous critical infrastructure facilities. The workshop aims to increase coordination and communication and improve understanding of critical priorities between water utilities and emergency management, fire and law enforcement, transportation and other emergency response agencies at all levels of government. The City of Portland Water Bureau and Environmental Services, ORWARN, the Regional Water Providers Consortium, and the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management are assisting U.S. EPA to plan and conduct this workshop.
The target audience is local, state, and federal agencies in the Portland metro area:
Drinking water and wastewater utilities
Water, wastewater and emergency management associations
Emergency management agencies
Fire Departments, Police, 911 Dispatch
We will be applying for CE credits for Drinking Water and Wastewater Utility operators.
