Course Description & Prerequisites

The National Infrastructure Protection Plan identified water and wastewater (WWW) systems as critical infrastructure (CI). These systems are critical to the communities' public health and economic development. The interdependencies between WWW, other CI sectors, and emergency management requires a common understanding. This course provides an opportunity to work together to improve community resiliency.

We will introduce frameworks for WWW disaster management including portions of the Environmental Protection Agency's Response Protocol Toolbox. Participants will examine case studies and will have the opportunity to identify planning factors in response to a catastrophic event.

Prerequisite FEMA/SID Number: Students must register and bring a copy of their SID number to class. Register online:

Prerequisite Training Recommendation: IS-100, IS-200, IS-700 and IS-800. The courses can be found online at:
