About GAWARN 

Mission

The mission of the Georgia WARN (GAWARN) is to support and promote statewide emergency preparedness, disaster response, and mutual aid assistance matters for the public and private water and wastewater utilities in the case of both natural and man-made caused events.

Goals

The goal of GAWARN is to provide immediate relief for member utilities during emergencies. GAWARN works by matching personnel with the necessary tools and equipment to both assess and assist the impacted water and wastewater system as quickly as possible until a permanent solution to the devastation may be implemented. This method of assistance is analogous to triage at a hospital.

The goals of Georgia WARN are to provide:

  • A mutual assistance agreement and process for sharing emergency resources among water and wastewater agencies statewide.
  • A mutual assistance program consistent with other statewide mutual aid and assistance programs and the National Incident Management System (NIMS)
  • The resources to respond and recover more quickly from a natural or man-made caused disaster.

Future Tools for GAWARN members


The core of the GaWARN website will be its emergency equipment database that matches utility resources to a member's needs during an emergency. A member will be able to locate emergency equipment (pumps, generators, chlorinators, evacuators, etc.) and trained personnel (e.g. treatment plant operators) that they may need in an emergency.
