No Cost On-Site Training: Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater Utilities

The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service/National Emergency Response and Rescue Training Center (TEEX/NERRTC) through an agreement with DHS/FEMA can bring two Water & Wastewater disaster emergency training courses to your location at NO COST to you.

The courses are designed to equip utilities with disaster planning and response tools to be able to deal with “all hazards” events.  Participants work through portions of the EPA Response Protocol Toolbox and learn about real world as well as hypothetical case studies for water/wastewater incidents.  Participants also can practice developing a disaster response plan.

The first offering – (MGT 342) Strategic Overview of Disaster Management for Water and Wastewater – is a four hour training event.  Course MGT 343 – Disaster Management for Water & Wastewater Utilities – is a 16 hour experience.  While courses are free to utilities, there must be a minimum of 24 participants (maximum class size is 50).  In addition, both courses offer CEUs.

For more information about these trainings or to schedule one of these courses, please contact: Vince Slominski, Training Manager TEEX/ITSI at 979-458-4609 or email vince.slominski@teex.tamu.edu.  You can also go to www.teex.org then in the Search TEEX field, type MGT 343 or MGT 342.
