Water safety and security: Emergency response plans
Expanded Title:The project aims to provide guidance on the development of Emergency Response Plans with associated templates in order to protect public health, safety and security. Emergency response planning includes exploring vulnerabilities / threats / challenges, and possible risks (called emergency triggers in this project). The aims of the project were as follows: • Survey what exists currently in terms of Emergency Response Plans and identify international practices. • Assist Community Water Services to identify water services and water services infrastructure threats, vulnerabilities and risks. • Assist Community Water Services to identify management supporting plans and/or documents required in support of risk and asset management focusing on water services emergencies. • Develop a draft water safety and security Emergency Response Plan (ERP) guideline with useful templates with reference to international ERP practices. • Workshop the draft guide at selected communities/municipalities. • Workshop the guide at local, provincial and national meetings and/or conferences. • Develop a final ERP guide with inputs and amendments from the pilot and workshops with useful templates.
