What is CtWARN?
CtWARN is a Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) comprised of utilities providing assistance voluntarily to each other in the form of personnel and resources during emergencies by means of a pre-arranged mutual aid agreement.
CtWARN provides increased planning, coordination and enhanced access to specialized resources to enable rapid, short-term deployment of emergency services to restore critical operations of the affected utility.
