Description:

Disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and floods can create enormous volumes of debris. Debris can hinder response and recovery efforts, cause costly delays, and pose significant logistical challenges. Debris management can be extremely complex, creating, testing, and training to a pre-disaster debris management plan specific to the area is key to successful operations.
This eight-hour management-level course is designed to enable participants to identify debris management components and the best planning practices using existing plan examples and case studies. Participants will also draft an outline of a debris management plan. MGT-460 Planning for Disaster Debris Management provides participants with the knowledge, skills, and tools necessary to create pre-disaster debris management plans for their own communities.

The goal of this course is to enable participants to outline a disaster debris management plan and recognize special considerations when planning for debris management after a natural disaster.
