Multi-Hazard Disaster Outreach, Awareness, and Education
This proposal supports outreach efforts targeted at educating other agencies, government officials, community leaders, and the general public on the risks associated with flooding, flood after fire, and dam safety in California. The need to communicate dam safety topics, including the understanding of inundation maps, has become increasingly important. California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) will lead the efforts at communicating California's flood and other related risks.
Nevada Provides Dam Safety Support for EAPs and TTXS
This project will suppport the coordination, facilitation and presentation of dam safety workshops hosted by Nevada DWR, Nevada Division of Emergency Management, and other partners, provide dam owners and the public basic knowledge of Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) and how to run a successful tabletop exercise (TTX), with the goals of connecting dam owners and the public to emergency management officials.
Workshops will provide dam owners the tools and contacts to conduct their own TTXs specific to their own EAPs. The project will also provide multimedia support to dam owners who are interested in hosting emergency TTXs.
