EFCN: Resiliency Means Business! Preparing for Risks to Safe & Reliable Service
August 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Date & Time: Tuesday, August 9, 2022 | 10:00 – 11:00 AM PST
Description: We hear about “resilience” a lot these days — given the many pressures and uncertainties felt by businesses, organizations and even individuals. For lifeline drinking water utilities, business continuity and performance is a matter of health and life safety. Resilience is often first thought of in terms of emergency and hazard recovery preparations. It extends beyond that to how business is supported in all ongoing aspects. This webinar serves as an introduction to this broad approach, and a gateway to free tools and assistance available from U.S. EPA and the Environmental Finance Center Network. Topics include: How to scan risk broadly, including the uncertainty of a changing environment; Access to tools through a downloaded guided inventory document and discussion of examples during the webinar, and; Opportunities for further one-on-one technical and training assistance from the Network.
Presenter: Dr. Jack Kartez, Senior Advisor and Emeritus Director, New England Environmental Finance Center at the University of Southern Maine
