Planning is the cornerstone of preparedness. Preparedness is a shared responsibility beginning with you and extending to the federal government. Training and exercises are critical to the preparedness process. A multi-year training and exercise (T&E) plan is a tool that can be used to help your utility attain preparedness goals. This document will assist utilities to create multi-year T&E plans that can lead to increased emergency preparedness. Utilities must prepare to maintain their critical services under all-hazard conditions. Preparedness is essential for effective incident and emergency management and recovery. The water sector should be engaged in a continuous cycle of planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising, evaluating, and taking corrective actions to achieve and maintain readiness to respond to, and reduce impacts from, emergencies. Preparedness also leads to increased resiliency, which is a key component of a utilitys ability to provide critical services under adverse conditions.
