EPA Hosting COOP Template Training for Labs Webinar

Our colleagues at EPA’s Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA) Team invite you and your drinking water and wastewater laboratory colleagues to join the upcoming WLA Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) Template Training Webcast.

DATE:  July 7, 2015

TIME:   1:00-2:00PM (eastern)

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

The webcast will provide an overview of the COOP Template for Drinking Water and Wastewater Laboratories developed by EPA’s WLA Team and will also demonstrate how the COOP Template fillable form can be used by laboratories to develop a personalized COOP.  State drinking water programs should collaborate with state labs to make sure that their respective COOPs are aligned and harmonized for maximum efficiency.

The template helps create a plan that contains information to:

  • Establish policies and procedures to assure continuous performance of laboratory testing
  • Provide communication and direction to stakeholders
  • Minimize the loss of assets, resources, critical records and data
  • Reduce or mitigate disruptions to the laboratory’s operation
  • Effectively manage the immediate response to an emergency

Please share this announcement with your laboratory colleagues.
