Description: CCDEH Debris Management Workshop for Disaster Response.


The ER Committee has been working with CalEPA, CalOES, DTSC, CDPH and CalRecycle to set up a 2 hour workshop on August 30th from 9-11.  We will be presenting information and answering questions about how to prepare for debris related disaster along with an over view of what a State versus County run program may look like.  The workshop will cover a program overview, Pre-event planning and expectations and technical resources to assist with answering some of the following questions: 


  • How should a County Environmental Health agency plan and prepare for a disaster debris management program?
  • What is the difference between a locally run public program and a State run program?
  • When would a County be asked to run the public program and how can they prepare? 
  • What resources are currently available and what can be done locally to facilitate outcomes if a program is required?
  • What technical support and resources are available and how can they be accessed by a County?


We have an incredible opportunity to bring together the following experts to share this information and answer questions.  Currently the following presenters are confirmed:


CalEPA – Jason Boetzer,  Assistant Secretary, Local Program Coordination and Emergency Management : John Elkins, Environmental Program Manager, Emergency Response, Refinery Safety, CalARP, & HMBP

CalOES - Cole Glenwright, Chief, Debris Operations Unit : Kelsie McInnis, Senior Emergency Services Coordinator, Debris Operations Unit

CalRecycle -  Heather Geldart, Deputy Director : Courtney Hart, DDRO Unit
