1/29/2020 - #870: Emergency Response Planning for Small Communities
Small and rural utility systems are ill-equipped to deal with emergency situations due mostly to a lack of planning. Since very small rural systems are not required to complete a vulnerability assessment, they have not updated their emergency response plan so the possibility of an emergency occurring is not always taken seriously. For most Systems, the types of emergencies that will occur are nature-made and not necessarily taken as seriously as they should be. Most wastewater systems think man-made events will never happen to them and do not have emergency response plans. This course is designed to educate system personnel on all the different aspects that may constitute an emergency and how to better prepare themselves and their community for all types of events.
