Disaster Response and Mutual Aid

Mutual Aid Playbook

The Mutual Aid Playbook helps public power utilities to participate in coordinated disaster response with state and federal government officials.

The playbook lists roles and responsibilities for utilities, network coordinators, and national coordinators. The playbook also provides sample mutual aid agreements, damage assessment templates, and resource request and approval forms for help before, during, and after an event.
