The Vermont Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (VT WARN) allows water and wastewater systems to receive rapid mutual aid from other systems. It is free and voluntary. Find more information at

If your system needs assistance such as equipment or extra personnel, use this form to submit a request. (The form was not working but it has been fixed.) Systems that provide mutual aid and systems that request mutual aid can receive reimbursement from FEMA, but ONLY if they have signed the WARN mutual aid agreement (PDF).
