National Critical Infrastructure Security & Resiliency Month: Week #2

The theme for the second week of National Critical Infrastructure Security & Resilience Month is GET READY!  States are encouraged to work with their utilities to be better prepared for natural and man-made disasters by conducting an emergency response exercise.  Check out the two options below!
OPTION 1:
Plan your next exercise using the Tabletop Exercise Tool for Water Systems (TTX Tool).  The TTX Tool contains 15 scenarios that help you address all-hazards in preparing for emergencies.  Customize the situation manual, discussion questions, and PowerPoint presentations to meet your needs.  The Tabletop Exercise Tool is here: https://www.epa.gov/waterresiliencetraining/develop-and-conduct-water-resilience-tabletop-exercise-water-utilities.
OPTION 2:
Distribute the EPA Water Infrastructure Video to your utilities and encourage them to share this 1-minute video with their customers, colleagues, and partners.  EPA developed this public service announcement to raise awareness and appreciation of critical water and wastewater infrastructure.  Click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWGKHRxzonI to view the video.
