Environmental Officers must be mindful that they may be looked to for direction during times of storms and other natural disasters and the related recovery.
Such items that need to be remembered are:
Solid Waste Remediation // Outdoor Burning // Mold // Wastewater // Drinking Water Safety // Chemical & Fertilizer Response // Spills // Contamination
This does not mean that you have to know everything but be familiar with the basics and know where your resources are. There are great resources on the TCEQ and EPA website for hurricanes and natural disasters.
And don't forget about the family at home when you are likely to be called to work. Make sure you have a "survival" kit at home that is well stocked with the basic needs such as water, food, batteries, flashlights, bug repellant, extra dry clothes, hygiene products, medicines, and other important items.
