This no-cost workshop will bring together representatives from federal, state and local officials, law enforcement, industry stakeholders and other partners. This workshop will educate participants about interdependencies between water, food, and agriculture and other critical infrastructure sectors during a terrorist incident, including weapons of mass destruction, as well as other man-made or natural disasters.

Law enforcement officials, water, food, agriculture, and public health officials will build relationships; and discuss roles and responsibilities of various local, state, and federal officials in responding to a multi-sector incident. In addition, participants will identify specific actions participants can take to increase their community’s water, food, and agriculture preparedness and resiliency.  This operational activity will ensure attendees receive intelligence threat information and gain a greater understanding of how to recognize suspicious activity and how to report such activity.

State drinking water program staff, drinking water utilities, and local officials with responsibilities related to water security are encouraged to participate.  Space is limited, so please register today.
