Emergency network helps Oregon utilities share resources during a disaster

In an emergency, time is critical. The Oregon Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (ORWARN), part of a nationwide effort launched after Hurricane Katrina, lets utilities join together to post equipment and teams that can be mobilized during an emergency, without requiring an official disaster declaration. Insite revamped ORWARN’s website with multiple search tools to make it easier for member utilities to find what they need and speed access to aid. The website also integrates YouTube and Twitter to boost communication among members.
