Vulnerability Assessments and Emergency Preparedness Planning

Pursuant to the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, Southeastern Technical Solutions completed a number of water system vulnerability assessments and prepared and/or updated numerous utility emergency preparedness plans to meet the requirements of the Act and Chapter 62-555, F.A.C.

In addition to the Risk Assessment for Water (RAM-W) and Vulnerability Self-Assessment Toll (VSAT), STS uses the principles from Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CEPTD) and the military’s security – vulnerability risk assessment methodology in completing vulnerability assessments so that the end result is a multi-faceted, defense-in-depth mitigation approach that reduces the potential emergency consequences to a more manageable level.
