Public Works

EMAC and WARN WebinarIn cooperation with the American Water Works Association (AWWA), NEMA hosted an informational Webinar on the Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN).  WARN provides a standardized system for water and wastewater to deploy intrastate and through EMAC. 

The FEMA Public Works Working Group developed models for EMAC Mission Ready Packages using NIMS Typing.

The water sector has expanded its mutual aid and assistance capability through the establishment of an intrastate network, the Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (WARN) (

To expedite communication of water sector resource needs during an incident, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) developed the Water & Wastewater Mutual Aid & Assistance Resource Typing Manual PDF, which uses EMAC for interstate mutual aid deployments. 

This manual was developed with extensive input from water utility owners/operators and is based on the team/mission approach to incident response for intra- and interstate mutual aid and assistance.

Actions for Public Works Resource Providers:

  • Contact your state emergency management agency to determine if your resource is deployable under EMAC.
  • Download the public works model Mission Ready Packages.
  • Develop your own response-specific Mission Ready Package using the Microsoft Excel template.
