“To support and promote statewide emergency preparedness, disaster response, and mutual aid between water and wastewater utilities responding to major emergencies.”

Reggie Baker InWARN Award   

       

If you haven’t heard already, we are pleased to inform you that Adam B. Watts is this year’s recipient of the InWARN Reggie Baker Award.  The Award is given out to the individual that has contributed the most during the past year to the advancement of our InWARN Mission – to support and promote statewide emergency preparedness, disaster response, and mutual aid between water and wastewater utilities responding to major emergencies.  Adam, in his role as IDEM’s Security and Counterterrorism Specialist, has served as IDEM’s representative on the InWARN Steering Committee.  During the past two years he has actively promoted the InWARN initiative when attending and speaking at meetings and conferences, or when just communicating with utility representatives.  He has also volunteered his personal time and made presentations when needed to utility boards and municipal decision makers on the merits of participating in the InWARN Network.  It is in large part to his efforts that our utility membership is now solidly above 100.  Please join us in congratulating Adam and thanking him for his contribution to the advancement of our InWARN Mission.

Stan Diamond, InWARN Steering Committee Secretary-Treasurer

 

InWARN Sponsorship

How does InWARN work during an emergency?

After a disaster, Member Utilities are able to request assistance through InWARN’s Regional Emergency Operations Coordinators (REOCs) or through this website, indicating the specific assistance needed. Member Utilities can respond if they have the personnel and equipment to do so. Since power and communication systems are often damaged during major emergencies, InWARN REOCs will work through State Emergency Management officials to communicate with Member Utilities in the affected areas.

 

Available to all approved members, the secure  Members Site  of InWARN.org includes emergency contact information for all member agencies and REOCs and emergency assistance requests.

  • If your utility has already filled out the membership application and you have a password, log into the Members Site .
  • If your utility hasn’t filled out the membership application, click on Membership Application to register your utility as a member.

PLEASE REMEMBER: As an emergency response program it is imperative that InWARN has the latest, thorough and effective contact information. Outdated or incorrect information can hinder efforts to help your agency, and severely inhibit InWARNs function in an emergency. Also, if you have aggressive spam protection, please insure that InWARN is on your list of allowed senders.
