The "Water/Wastewater Utility All-Hazards Boot Camp" is a free training course from the EPA designed for water and wastewater employees responsible for emergency response and recovery activities. It also explains why and how to implement an all-hazards program.  

Walk through a scenario with "Our Town Utility" staff, hear from water sector representatives, and test your knowledge on the following topics:

  • Prevention and mitigation
  • Preparedness
  • Response                                                                                         
  • Recovery

After downloading and completing the training, a certificate of completion will be generated that may be used for continuing education credits. However, users should check with the appropriate state operator certification program or visit their state website to verify the number of CEUs or training hours before submitting their certificate.
