On October 18, the National Information Sharing Consortium will be hosting a webinar with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Emergency Services Sector-Specific Agency (ESS) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Connecting Emergency Management Agencies and Water Utilities.
The webinar will discuss how emergency management agencies and water utilities can increase preparedness and help ensure that communities have essential drinking water and wastewater services during emergencies. The webinar will highlight key actions that emergency management agencies and water utilities can take to build relationships, coordinate planning, share emergency capabilities, develop joint messages, and issue access cards. The webinar will also include some case study examples of how robust partnerships between emergency management agencies and water utilities have improved planning and response efforts.
The DHS ESS/EPA webinar is the fourteenth webinar in the NISC’s Mission-Focused Job Aids Webinar Series that reviews tools, techniques, and standard operating procedures that NISC partners in the homeland security, emergency management, public safety, first responder, and healthcare preparedness communities use to facilitate and manage information sharing. For more information about the webinars series and the NISC, visit the NISC website at www.nisconsortium.org. To become a member of the NISC, click hereto join, membership is free for all users!
