EPA Webinar: Pre-incident Planning for CBRN Waste Management
The EPA are holding a free webinar on Pre-incident Planning for CBRN Waste Management on July 13, 2022 at 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET.
Past experience has shown that communities with comprehensive and well-coordinated waste management plans recover more quickly and at a lower cost from natural and man-made disasters, making these communities more resilient. Unfortunately, planning for waste management generated as a result of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear incidents has been identified as a major capability gap in overall homeland security response and recovery preparedness.
EPA has developed a step-by-step online tool to help emergency planners and responders develop pre-incident waste management plans. This tool provides a framework to help managers, planners, and responders initiate plan development, providing variable degrees of assistance from simple outlines of plan contents, to providing scenario-specific waste quantity value estimates to use in developing a plan. It also includes detailed information on waste management facilities and information on transportation options. This webinar will provide an overview of the tool and provide examples of how emergency response personnel could use the tool to start pre-incident planning today.
