Shining the Spotlight on Water during National Food Safety Month

Drinkable water is used abundantly in food service establishments, so what are your options if that water source is interrupted?  Galen Baxter, Food Program Director for the Georgia Department of Health’s  Division of Environmental Health, partnered with the Georgia Restaurant Association to present a webinar entitled: “Water Interruption – Incapacitation or Inconvenience?”  This program is about 30 minutes long and provides an overview of the different types of Emergency Water Interruption notices issued by the the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Environmental Protection Division, along with some basic guidance for food service establishments in the event of a water interruption event.  You will also have the opportunity to review the responsibilities of the person-in-charge before and during an event and more.
