Emergency Response Plan Template

The Kentucky Division of Water has developed this template to provide standard guidance to all public water systems throughout the state’s different regions. No two public water systems are alike; therefore, no two Emergency Response Plans will be the same. This template can (and should be) modified to fit the specific needs of each public water system.

Workshop and Tabletop Exercise – After Action Report

On October 26, 2011 approximately 27 representatives from Kentucky drinking water and wastewater utilities, U.S. EPA Region 4, the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (KYDEP), and representatives from cities and towns across Kentucky participated in a day-long training event focused on emergency preparedness and response to an incident affecting the water sector. The KYWARN event consisted of presentations in the morning and then participants engaged in a tabletop exercise in the afternoon. A facilitated “hotwash” was held immediately following the tabletop exercise (TTX) discussion to collect comments from the players. The exercise was designed to provide participants with an opportunity to discuss the response capabilities of KYWARN and identify strengths, weaknesses, and future training needs of the program.  To review the report click here.
