Free Workshops: MGT-342 Strategic Overview of Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities course taught by the Texas A&M – TEEX at Two Locations: Saegertown and Erie, PA

February 25 - February 26

MGT-342 Strategic Overview of Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities course taught by the Texas A&M – TEEX

Provided by the Northwestern Pennsylvania Emergency Response Group &

Texas A&M – TEEX

 

Course Description:  The National Infrastructure Protection Plan identified water and wastewater (WWW) systems as critical infrastructure (CI). These systems are critical to the communities’ public health and economic development. The interdependencies between WWW, other CI sectors, and emergency management require a common understanding by jurisdiction stakeholders of water sector impacts. This overview course provides an opportunity to work together to improve community resiliency.

We will introduce frameworks for WWW disaster management including portions of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Response Protocol Toolbox. Participants will examine case studies and will have the opportunity to identify planning factors in response to a catastrophic event.

Individuals seeking more in depth Water sector Disaster Management training should consider the 16 hour Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities MGT-343.
