NJWARN is a statewide Water and Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) of “utilities helping utilities” to prepare for the next natural disaster or human-caused emergency. The purpose of a WARN is to provide a method whereby utilities can receive emergency aid and assistance in the form of personnel, equipment, materials, and other associated services as necessary from other water and wastewater utilities.
The USEPA views participation as a key component in promoting a resilient infrastructure which is a primary goal of the National Infrastructure Protection Plan. The backbone of the WARN concept is the Mutual Aid and Assistance Agreement. It is in the Mutual Aid and Assistance Agreement where provisions for the network activation, reimbursement, liability and other issues are mutually agreed upon by participating utilities. Participation in NJWARN is voluntary, there is no obligation to respond to a request, and there is no direct cost to be a member of the Network.
