New EPA best practices – Connecting Water Utilities and Emergency Management Agencies

New EPA best practices – Connecting Water Utilities and Emergency Management Agencies

 

Based on a series of workshops related to Water and Emergency Services Coordination, EPA developed the following document that highlights some best practices and examples.

 

Connecting Water Utilities and Emergency Management Agencies

EPA’s Connecting Water Utilities and Emergency Management Agencies summarizes some best practices on how water utilities and emergency management agencies can increase their coordination. Through joint exercises, coordinated planning, and other activities, water utilities and emergency management agencies can more effectively respond to emergencies and improve their communication with the public.   This document also includes examples of cross-sector coordination.  https://www.epa.gov/communitywaterresilience/collaboration-between-water-utilities-and-emergency-management

 

While this is only 4 pages in length, there are numerous links to other resources; therefore the document is best used as a pdf, and not printed.

 

There is a similar/related document at the above link which discusses coordination between emergency management and the state drinking water agency.
