From hurricanes to wildfires, snowstorms to tornadoes, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of natural disasters over the past few years. While the frequency and severity of these events has been increasing, customer tolerance for outages is declining. No utility, regardless of its location, can afford to remain unprepared. Join the experts for an in-depth look at the public power storm restoration guide. Share lessons learned and identify best practices in power restoration and mutual aid.
Explore the full range of issues involved in disaster response and recovery — emergency planning, mitigation, and preparedness, maintenance and engineering, damage assessment, crew staging and deployment, and the scalability of outage management systems. Discuss cost considerations for each key area, tips for securing FEMA funding, and learn through real-life examples. Learn how to estimate when power can be restored and how to communicate with customers and other stakeholders in emergencies. Understand how best you can mobilize mutual aid to supplement your restoration efforts.
Attendees will receive a copy of APPA’s Restoration Best Practices Guidebook (founded by DOE), FEMA Assistance and Grant Programs Toolkit publication, and Public Power Mutual Aid Playbook.
Public power managers, safety professionals, and utility staff who are responsible for or who make decisions concerning safety within transmission and distribution systems.
