The Ontario Waterpower Association is pleased to partner once again with the Canadian Dam Association to host an Emergency Management workshop for the waterpower industry. The workshop will identify the existing resources for emergency preparedness and management that might be applicable to dams; discuss strategies to prepare for and respond to emergencies. The overall goal is to set the framework for potential CDA products (technical bulletins, training, etc.) that would help the dam community prepare for, respond to and recover from an emergency. The workshop will be of benefit to dam owners, managers, and regulators; preparedness specialists; representatives from all three levels of government; and academics focusing on emergency preparedness and response.
