WisWARN: Wisconsin Water / Wastewater Agency Response Network

Mutual Aid Agreement


PLEASE NOTE: This is the Mutual Aid Agreement (MAA) aimed at facilitating rapid emergency response amongst WisWARN member utilities. Signing the MAA is NOT mandatory for basic WisWARN registration. However members are encouraged to sign and submit the agreement as soon as possible.

The MAA has been carefully crafted by legal experts working with utilities to promote "utilities helping utilities" in time of emergency. Your support is appreciated. The WisWARN Steering Committee will review all suggestions for future improvements, including comments forwarded from member utilities’ attorneys, and may revise the MAA as needed, on a yearly basis.

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

You can download the MAA or you can complete it online. To complete the form online, you must be authorized by your utility to complete the agreement. Please be sure to completely review the agreement before submitting online. Only registered members of the WisWARN website may complete the online agreement. If you are a registered member, please login, and then click the "My MAA" link. If you are not yet a member, please register with the WisWARN website. After your membership has been approved, you may login and complete the online agreement.

If you use the paper form of the MAA, please attach a copy of your registration form (signature page needed only - make copy for your records) or the email confirmation notice if you submitted online.

Mail the signed MAA to:
