Two new videos on Water and Wastewater Agency Response Networks (WARNs)

August 17, 2012 | Economy, Jobs, Water

EPA has produced two videos on WARN to improve awareness of the WARN initiative, attract new members to existing WARNs, and promote the benefits of WARN and conducting tabletop exercises.

The first video, titled “Background on the WARN Initiative”, is targeted to non-WARN members and response partners unfamiliar with WARN. The video describes how WARN programs were started, the current status of WARNs across the United States, and the benefits of joining a WARN.

The second video, “WARN Tabletop Exercises”, targets existing WARN members and uses footage from actual tabletop exercises. The video describes the benefits of tabletop exercises, discusses key issues and lessons learned from previous exercises, and encourages participation in tabletop exercises.

Both videos can also be found on the EPA Office of Water’s Mutual Aid and Assistance webpage under the WARN Home and Tabletop Exercises tabs. Please feel free to share these videos widely, whether adding to your organization’s YouTube channel, posting to your own website, or simply forwarding this message on to interested groups.
