Hosted by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – Region 5 and the Oneida Nation
IS YOUR TRIBE PREPARED TO MANAGE DEBRIS AFTER A DISASTER?
U.S. EPA Region 5 is sponsoring a Tribal Disaster Debris Management Training in partnership with the Oneida Nation and the National Tribal Emergency Management Council. This training is geared towards tribal staff involved in emergency management, waste management, public works, planning, and other areas. Debris management is an integral part of emergency management, especially in response to extreme weather or other disasters. Tribes that incorporate sustainable materials management into their disaster debris management plans will also be better prepared to handle disaster debris in a more efficient, environmentally beneficial manner. Tribal staff will have the opportunity to work in small groups with staff from other tribal and other governmental agencies to begin developing effective, sustainable debris management plans before disasters strike.
- Develop the essential components of a disaster debris management plan.
- Understand the climate resilience, disaster debris, and emergency response interconnection.
- Engage in dialogue with various entities representing potential stakeholders critical to disaster debris response and recovery.
- Learn about available tools and resources for effective, sustainable disaster debris management.
