Why is Ohio WARN a necessity for your community & family?
Water and wastewater systems provide our communities with a life-sustaining resource that is of vital importance to maintaining public health, sanitation and safety. When water and wastewater services are interrupted for extended periods of time, a community’s well-being quickly deteriorates, as evidenced by Hurricane Katrina. And without an adequate water supply, our communities are vulnerable to devastating fires. By restoring water and wastewater service in the most efficient manner possible, Ohio WARN provides renewed hope for fast recovery from such disasters. Ohio WARN is also available to use in non-disaster emergencies or when you may be in need of help or assistance.
