How Well Will You Coordinate with Your Lab in an Emergency?

There’s still time to find out.  There are two remaining 2015 Water Laboratory Alliance Tabletop Exercise Webcasts.  You are invited to register today.

DATES:            April 15 and May 14, 2015

TIMES:             Both from 10:00AM – Noon (eastern)

REGISTER:      http://water.epa.gov/infrastructure/watersecurity/wla/training.cfm.

These webcasts are hosted EPA and examine the coordination of laboratory services in response to a drinking water contamination incident. The scenario-based exercises provide utilities, state and local governments, emergency responders and laboratory personnel with the opportunity to answer questions based on their real-life experiences and knowledge of emergency response practices and procedures contained in the Water Laboratory Alliance Response Plan (WLA-RP). Exercise participants will receive first-hand experience with Water Sector emergency response “best practices” and water security tools and resources.

Please forward this email to any of your colleagues or other Response Partners that you feel would benefit from this training exercise.

Over 350 people participated in the first twelve webcasts of this series conducted between March 2014 and March 2015. The following is some of the feedback we have received:

     State Drinking Water Agency Participant: “We like the way that the exercise was conducted.  …it was interactive, we could see the responses, and it was the perfect length of time.”

     Water Utility Participant: “We learned a great deal during the course of this scenario. The step-by-step question and answer process was very helpful.”
