WARNs in Action

EPA has developed a new video to increase water sector awareness of the Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) initiative and attract new members to existing WARNs.  Entitled “WARNs in Action”, the video illustrates the types of events in which the mutual aid networks have been utilized and emphasizes the importance of water sector coordination during an emergency.  Interviews with WARN representatives provide details on particular benefits of WARN, explaining how the programs have reduced response time and saved utilities money during emergencies.

The video can be found on the WARN Home tab of the Office of Water’s Mutual Aid and Assistance webpage (www.epa.gov/mutualaid).  ASDWA encourages you to share the video – and the website – with your water utilities, your state emergency management counterparts, and others who should be aware of the value of participating in or engaging with your state’s WARN.
