MMUA members have dealt with numerous natural disasters over the years, from blizzard to flood to tornado. Throughout these challenges the state's municipal utilities have responded promptly and effectively to help their fellow municipal utility communities. MMUA has played an increasingly central role in many of these mutual aid response efforts over the years. That combined experience has been distilled into a mutual aid playbook. This manual covers pre-planning and communication, record-keeping and a number of other crucial topics related to efficiently recovering from or responding to mutual aid situations. This publication remains under development.
We now have a 4-minute rodeo recap video of the Public Power Lineworkers Rodeo, live on the MMUA YouTube channel. It features great footage and interviews with a number of key players in the event. The April 2 event was hosted by Shakopee Public Utilities and MMUA, and brought together lineworkers from across the country. Watch this video and enjoy reliving that amazing day.
