Course Objectives: This course is intended to provide both the novice and experienced dam safety emergency planner with valuable lessons and skills that will allow them to develop new EAPs and improve the effectiveness of existing EAPs. The course is a hands-on, interactive workshop, covering the basic elements and knowledge required to prepare, implement, update, and review effective EAPs that will mesh with the constantly changing emergency management community.
The agenda is structured to answer the following key questions:
There are no specific education or experience prerequisites for this course, although some knowledge/experience in dam safety would be beneficial.
- Why are EAPs important?
- What are the important components of an effective EAP?
- How do you develop, update, and test an EAP?
