EPA Offers TTX Training Webinars

EPA has uploaded two training webinars about more effective use of their Tabletop Exercise Tool for Water Systems: Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Climate Resiliency (also known as the TTX Tool).  If you are a trainer or work with communities that want to (or need to) improve their security preparedness and resilience through use of a tabletop exercise, then this is for you!

As you may recall, the TTX Tool assists in planning, designing, conducting, and evaluating a tabletop exercise on 15 different all-hazards scenarios. These two training modules (recordings of previously aired webinars) are designed to provide more detailed guidance on how to effectively use the materials on the TTX Tool at a drinking water or wastewater utility:

  • Webinar 1 is a 60-minute webinar recording that provides a basic overview of the functionality and content of the TTX Tool.
  • Webinar 2 is a 90-minute webinar recording that provides more information on how to use and customize the materials contained on the TTX Tool to design your own tabletop exercise, along with useful tips for facilitating an exercise.

Interested?  Want to know more?  Both the TTX Tool and the training webinars can be found at http://water.epa.gov/infrastructure/watersecurity/techtools/ttx.cfm.  Due to the large file size of these webinars, please be patient as they may take a few moments to load in your web browser.

Please contact ttxtool@epa.gov with any questions or to offer feedback about the TTX or the training webinars.
