Purpose of the Mutual Aid Agreement

LVVWD tractor main break

The Mutual Aid Agreement (MAA) is designed to facilitate rapid emergency response among NvWARN member utilities.  Signing the agreement is not mandatory for basic NvWARN registration; however, members are encouraged to sign and submit the agreement in advance.

Having a signed MAA on file prior to an emergency can greatly facilitate planning and prioritizing by agencies responding to your requests for help.

The NvWARN MAA is not designed to address or settle any or all situations and legalities that may arise.  The MAA provides members with an advance, good-faith indication from a responsible party that the requesting utility understands and agrees to the main concepts and provisions (including reimbursement) for mutual aid.

While the MAA provides acknowledgement of the provisions of sharing resources during an emergency, it is up to the requesting utilities that receive equipment and/or services to work directly with the assisting utilities to arrange reimbursement, as well as other aspects of mutual aid

The MAA simply outlines, in advance, the obligations expected of requesting agencies.
