From preparation to recovery: CAPCOG training tackles disaster-debris management

Friday, October 18, 2013

From wildfires and tornadoes to chemical spills and flooding, learn about preparation, response and recovery with “Disaster Debris Management 101: Tools for Local and Regional Governments,” presented by the Capital Area Council of Governments, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, at CAPCOG’s Pecan Room, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165, Austin, TX 78744. 

Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for check-in and refreshments.

The full-day training, featuring government and industry experts such as Mike Fisher, Bastrop County’s emergency management coordinator, will provide candid tips and case studies on planning, protecting public health and natural resources and ensuring disaster debris cleanups meet state and federal funding requirements. 

Experts in the field will address debris management plans, debris recycling, contractor monitoring and more. Discussion also will include successes and lessons in managing debris after the Bastrop County Complex Fire of 2011. 

Participation is open to the public, with emphasis on emergency planners and response staff, industry contractors, local government planners, elected officials and neighborhood leaders. 

The $35 admission includes refreshments, lunch and – for eligible participants – Texas Municipal League continuing education credits.
