Do you ever worry that you won’t have what you really need to respond to a water or wastewater emergency? Maybe you’ll need trained water or wastewater operators, engineers, water quality specialists, or supplies such as specific valves, chemicals, testing devices and equipment.
The Vermont Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (VTWARN) is a network of “utilities helping utilities.” This network helps water and wastewater utilities locate emergency assistance in the form of personnel, equipment, materials and other services. The VTWARN is proudly hosting a free event that includes an emergency response seminar and a tabletop exercise (TTX).
Emergency Response Seminar and TTX Description: The event will consist of morning seminar presentations covering topics related to VTWARN, as well as water and wastewater preparedness and response. The afternoon TTX, based on a hypothetical scenario, is designed to bring together water, wastewater, public safety, local and state agencies to discuss roles and responsibilities. This seminar and TTX are open to member utilities and non-member utilities, as well as response partners that are interested in learning more about VTWARN.
Training Hours: An application will be made for Vermont water and wastewater operators to earn training hours toward their license renewal requirements for their participation in the event.
