EPA’s Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA) Team invites you to attend the upcoming WLA Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) Template Training Webcast.  State primacy agencies are encouraged to participate and invite their labs to join as well to make sure that their respective COOP plans are well aligned and harmonized.

DATE:              Thursday, January 21, 2016

TIME:               1:00-2:00PM (eastern)

REGISTER:      https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wla-continuity-of-operations-plan-coop-template-training-tickets-20478831737?aff=ebrowse There is no cost to participate but you must register in advance.

The webcast will provide an overview of the COOP Template for Drinking Water and Wastewater Laboratories developed by EPA’s WLA Team and also demonstrate how the COOP Template fillable form can be used by laboratories to develop a personalized COOP.

The COOP 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
