MCCG Public Works Mutual Aid Network

The MCCG Public Works Mutual Aid Network includes both emergency and non-emergency programs.  The emergency mutual aid program allows participating communities to request assistance for personnel and equipment needs from other participating communities in times of emergency.  Under the terms of the network, assistance is completely voluntary, is provided at no cost and a jurisdiction maintains complete control over the type and amount of assistance provided. 


The non-emergency program allows participating communities to call on one another for personnel and equipment needs when facing an unusual or temporarily demanding project of a non-emergency nature. The participating communities can negotiate terms as desired. Participating local governments wishing to utilize the mutual aid network can view, save and print contact and equipment information (both pdf files) and Request for Assistance and Assistance Response Forms (both Word files) below.  A flow chart illustrating the process for using the network can be viewed here.
