The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has developed an updated tool to
assist utilities and other interested parties in planning and facilitating
tabletop exercises that focus on water sector-related issues.
Mini-DVD copies are now available. The Tabletop Exercise Tool for Water
Systems:Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Climate Resiliency (TTX Tool)
includes materials users can modify, allowing them to conduct a tabletop
exercise to meet their specific needs.
The TTX Tool introduces users to the potential impacts of climate change on the
water sector within the context of an all-hazards approach to emergency
preparedness and response. The 15 scenarios in the tool include natural
hazards, man-made incidents, and potential climate change impacts Five climate
change-related scenarios provide an opportunity for utilities to consider and
implement long-term planning measures in order to mitigate the potential
impacts of climate change.
