EPRO® Handbook Project

examines how lifeline utility companies, government agencies and other key stakeholders can partner to build resilience and significantly reduce the impact of natural and manmade hazards that could cause catastrophic, extended-duration power outages and critical infrastructure failures over multiple regions of the United States or other nations.  The Handbook also proposes a “whole community” approach to restoration and response, managing the consequences of outages that do occur with contributions from individuals and their families, agencies at all levels of government, Non-Governmental Organizations, and the private sector.

    The EPRO® Handbook - First Volume

    The first volume of the EPRO®  Handbook focuses on both all-hazard whole-community preparedness and on hazard-specific mitigation recommendations for e-threats.  The e-threat focus aims to bridge the gap between the significant preparedness efforts of the electric industry in regard to traditional hazards -- including catastrophic storms, cyber threats and coordinated physical attacks -- and to less developed preparedness measures for emerging threats, such as severe space weather, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapons.

    Coming Soon: EPRO® II - Urban Water Systems and Fuel Resources

    The first volume – EPRO® I – focuses exclusively on resilience and restoration options associated with the electric sector, and on opportunities for response from Federal, State and NGO partners that could be crucial in grid restoration.  Future volumes will propose initiatives to support coordinated resilience and response efforts with other critical infrastructure sectors that are vital for public health and safety.
