CAPCOG conducts free disaster debris workshops

Tuesday, March 03, 2015

Three free workshops offered by the Capital Area Council of Governments Solid Waste Planning Program will instruct local area governments on methods of mitigating debris caused by disasters.

The courses will give emergency management personnel, county and city elected officials, and code enforcement and sanitation workers insight to recovery processes after a disaster strikes their jurisdiction. Course topics in the workshops will include information ranging from planning before the disaster to helping secure federal funding assistance for the debris’ removal. Topics also will cover protecting public health and safety after a debris generating event, conducting exercises before a disaster, best practices for documenting the debris management and more.

Each course will build upon on knowledge of the previous class allowing newer emergency managers to build a strong foundation of expertise on the topic and giving veteran managers a chance to grow their knowledge on the topic.

The courses are as follows:
