Mutual Aid/Disaster Response

Hard-won experience

Municipal utilities are not immune to natural disasters. In fact, a list of communities devastated by recent floods, tornadoes and ice storms includes many MMUA member cities. We never know when disaster will strike, but we do know it is only a matter of time.

MMUA staff has gained a tremendous amount of hard-won experience over the years in responding to natural disasters. When disaster does strike, MMUA staff is prepared, at a moment’s notice, to come to your community to assist in the process of rebuilding your facilities. MMUA can organize and oversee any aspect of the mutual aid effort, allowing your staff to concentrate on the tasks it will need to focus on in a disaster recovery.
