Incident Command System (ICS) and National Incident Management System (NIMS) training remains a priority need. ICS and NIMS training sponsored by the U.S. EPA Water Security Division will use water sector specific examples, teach utilities how to integrate with other first responders, and provide a basis for giving or receiving mutual aid and assistance.
Small, medium and large water and wastewater utilities, water sector trainers, state drinking water primacy agencies, state wastewater permitting agencies, and federal workers with an active role in water sector emergency response should attend this training. There is no fee to attend this training, and training contact hours for operator license renewals will be applied for.
