Mutual aid is at the heart of what public power does. At its core, it’s about neighbors helping neighbors—even if your “neighbor” is a sister utility hundreds (or thousands) of miles away.
The American Public Power Association’s Mutual Aid Commendation Program aims to recognize utilities that have answered the call for assistance and aided another utility in restoring power to its customers. Commendation nominations should be for mutual aid events in the past 12 months. Recipients will receive a letter, certificate and sample press release.
