The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness will be sponsoring two deliveries of a two-day training course titled, “Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities” (MGT-343). The Texas Engineering Extension Service, a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium, will deliver the training.
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
The Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities course provides students with information about the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) Response Protocol Toolbox covering necessary steps to be taking during the response and recovery Water and Wastewater Utilities facilities. Participants will be guided through the various issues concerning preparing for, responding to, and recovering from incidents affecting water and/or wastewater facilities. The course introduces the various natural and man-made (accidental or intentional) hazards to which water and wastewater systems may be vulnerable and the potential effects the hazards may induce. Planning for and managing incidents are discussed, as well as disaster mitigation, response and recovery specific to drinking water and wastewater systems.
This course is for participants interested in obtaining the TEEX Infrastructure Disaster Management Certificate. The certificate is for professionals who wish to enrich their personal knowledge and skills related to critical infrastructure disaster management. Participants can request to receive a Series Certificate once all four courses (MGT-317, MGT-341, MGT-345, and MGT-343) are completed.
