A disaster response plan that addresses energy supply is in the works for the City of Casper.

A grant from the U.S. Department of Energy has funded a year of research on what our community can do to be energy prepared in an emergency and city officials want to share that information at a Energy Assurance Training next week.

"What if there was a disruption of energy. What if there was no gasoline. What if there was no electricity for an extended period of time. Energy Assurance is a concept being promoted by the Department of Energy and it's something that the city of Casper is picking up on."

City Spokesman, Pete Meyers says the one day training is meant for all traditional responders, but they also want to include frontline service providers like grocery store managers and gas station owners.

The Energy Assurance Training is free and happens Wednesday,  March 26th, from 8:15 to 5 p.m. in the city council chambers.  Call the city managers office at 307-235-8224 for more information and to RSVP.
