FEMA and USSD Workshop to be held May 15

The FEMA National Dam Safety Program: Rapid Dam Break, Flood and Consequence Assessment: Preparedness, Response, Recovery and Mitigation Risk Assessments workshop offered by FEMA and presented with the assistance of the United States Society of Dams (USSD), will teach dam safety professionals, dam safety regulators, community officials and emergency managers to understand how to rapidly identify the potential flood hazard areas downstream of dams, why it is important to evaluate the consequences of potential dam releases or failures, and what steps can be taken before a dam failure incident to mitigate flood risk and manage the risk that remains.
