Civil Works & Dam Safety: Real Life Simulation of Emergency Action Plans


Series: New Development & Civil Works and Dam Safety
Date : January 27, 2021

This session will begin with a presentation on what happened when the emergency action plan was activated at Oroville Dam, including feedback from evacuees. How accurate are the assumptions we make in the emergency action plans on decisions, implementation and effectiveness? How would this work for our time-sensitive EAPs? After the presentation, there will be a panel discussion on EAPs.
