NMPP’s Mutual Aid Program stands ready to assist utilities

March 25, 2020

As we continue to navigate through the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, we want to inform utilities of NMPP’s Mutual Aid program that the program stands ready to help member utilities that need assistance.

NMPP’s Mutual Aid Program was created for emergency situations and has been used numerous times through the years to assist utilities by coordinating workforce efforts, equipment and various logistics. It’s in times of need when public power utilities step forward to help others and NMPP’s mutual aid program is a great example.

The program can coordinate utility assistance in response to storm recovery, workforce disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, equipment needs or other emergencies that may arise.

NMPP encourages utilities to take the necessary precautions to minimize workforce disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic and to follow guidelines set by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and local State Health Agencies.

To request assistance through the program, contact Rich Eymann, NMPP Electrical Distribution O&M Specialist, at 402-473-8207 or reymann@nmppenergy.org.
