Webinar | EPA Live Demonstration of the Water Utility Response On-The-Go mobile app
September 17, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
Join the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a live demonstration of the Water Utility Response On-The-Go mobile app on September 17, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST. The demonstration will be approximately 15 minutes and will include a live Q&A session. This presentation will include a live demonstration of the EPA’s Water Utility Response On-The-Go mobile app – also known as Response OTG. Released in 2015, the app provides information and tools that water utilities can use to prepare for, respond to, and recover from an emergency. It includes tools that allow the user to track severe weather, contact response partners, assess damage, and complete incident action checklists. The app is able to access location data to give the user up-to-date information about local emergencies and enhance coordination on all response levels. It is available for free on the App Store or Google Play Store (instructions to download below). Please download the app to your phone prior to the demonstration so that you can follow along as we go through the app’s features and interface.
Get started by downloading the FREE Response On-The-Go App: 1. Navigate to the App Store or Google Play Store on your mobile device. 2. Search “EPA Response On-The-Go.” 3. Tap Install/Get; once installation is complete, open the app to begin. 4. Tap “Allow Notifications” when prompted. The App will now automatically notify you if severe weather is forecast for your area.
