Incorporate Changes into SOPs

Develop recommendations to improve communication and SOPs using information derived from the debriefing and evaluation processes. Incorporate changes in water system protocols and communication activities. Use a Corrective Action Tracking Formtool icon [DOC - 1 page] and the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Updates.tool icon [DOC - 1 page]

Participants of the advisory and debriefing need to know the results of the evaluation process. Reports should reflect the size and scope of the drinking water advisory and can range from a simple memo to a fullscale report. A report should summarize essential information for other post-event steps. See the Follow-Up Memo.tool icon [DOC - 1 page]

Routine updating of contact lists is an essential task. Use the debriefing process as an opportunity to improve this resource. Ensure routine updating by including it in regular protocols. Build reminders, such as online calendar prompts, into plans to update contact lists.
