Mutual aid among utilities can make all the difference after a severe storm or natural disaster hits, and following a well-thought-out, comprehensive system that outlines when and how assistance happens is crucial. That’s why the American Public Power Association (APPA), with the help of the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities (IAMU), developed a Mutual Aid Playbook for utilities across the country to use during emergencies.

To learn more about mutual aid, plan to attend one of five regional mutual aid meetings around the state that IAMU will hold during the week of May 22. IAMU electric, gas, and broadband members will be invited to hear more about:
- The IAMU Mutual Aid Program
- The APPA Mutual Aid Playbook
- The new Mutual Aid website
The locations and times for these regional meetings will be announced in the coming weeks.
