Tools for Resiliency

Tornado

September is National Preparedness Month, which means states and utilities are reminded to be proactive and prepare for disasters or emergencies that pose a risk to health or the environment.

EPA has released and updated several tools that assess states’ ability to prepare and respond to an emergency.

 

States are encouraged to promote these recently updated tools, so utilities may improve existing response plans, better prepare for contamination emergencies, and build resiliency.
