Do you ever worry that you won’t have what you really need to respond to a water or wastewater
emergency? Maybe you’ll need trained water operators, engineers, water quality specialists, or
supplies such as specific valves, chemicals, testing devices and equipment.

The Virginia Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (VA WARN) is a network of “utilities
helping utilities.” This network helps water and wastewater utilities locate emergency assistance in
the form of personnel, equipment, materials and other services. VA WARN is proudly hosting a free
event that includes an emergency response seminar and a tabletop exercise (TTX). More information
about VA WARN is available at http://www.vawarn.org.

Emergency Response Seminar and TTX Description: The event will consist of seminar presentations
covering topics related to VA WARN, as well as water and wastewater incident preparedness and
response. The afternoon TTX, based on a hypothetical scenario, is designed to bring together water,
wastewater, public safety, local and state agencies to discuss roles and responsibilities during an
incident. This seminar and TTX is open to member and non-member utilities, as well as private sector
response partners that are interested in learning more about VA WARN. Utilities are encouraged to
invite response partner representatives (e.g., emergency management director, police chief, fire chief)
to participate.

CEC/CPE Training Credits: Engineers will earn 6 CEC contact hours. Water and wastewater operators
will earn 6 CPE contact hours.
