  G202 Debris Management/Claiborne Co. Civil Defense Office/Port Gibson MS.
Course Title: G-202 Debris Management Planning (G-202)
Location: Claiborne County Civil Defense/Port Gibson MS

Time: 9:00 am until 4:30 pm
Target Audience: Members of state and local governments involved in planning for, responding to, and recovering from a major debris-generating event.

Prerequisites: None.

Course Goal: The goal of the course is to enable participants to successfully plan for, respond to and manage debris operations resulting from a debris generating disaster event.
Description of Course: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as well as State, Tribal and local governments, have become increasingly aware of the importance of providing clear and consistent guidance to communities on debris planning, response and recovery issues, and on FEMA eligibility and process requirements of debris removal activities. The cost of debris removal continues to rise, conflicts have arisen with community’s methods of contracting for and monitoring debris removal operations and methods of disposal are often found to not comply with environmental laws and regulations. As a result, public assistance applicants are often not receiving the full Public Assistance (PA) funding for which they would otherwise be eligible.
FEMA recognizes that effective planning and management of debris issues requires extensive training and experience. The Debris Management Planning for State and local Officials Course is designed to provide that training through nationally sponsored and directed instruction.
