Florida utilities are no strangers to disaster recovery. Thanks to the dramatic impact of hurricanes on the state in recent years, Florida’s water and wastewater providers have developed a system of mutual aid during emergency situations to help in rapid response and recovery. FlaWARN (Florida’s Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network) is the
formalized system of 'utilities helping utilities.' Although hurricane recovery was the impetus behind its formation, FlaWARN responds to both man-made emergencies and natural disasters providing resources to water, wastewater and other public service entities within member agencies.
