You may also want to consider the benefits of signing the MDWARN Mutual Aid Agreement. More information is available on our Mutual Aid Agreement page.

 
MDWARN is not a government entity. Some of the benefits of joining MDWARN:
  • MDWARN will use a single statewide mutual aid agreement which will help reduce administrative conflict over such things as: insurance, workers compensation, equipment rental rates, and other cost-related issues.
     
  • The statewide agreement does not conflict or supersede existing mutual aid agreements; rather, it complements them by providing a utility with a variety of response options.
     
  • There is no cost to join or annual cost to belong to MDWARN.
     
  • There is no commitment or obligation to respond if your utility receives a request.
     
  • It allows the local utility to remain in control of all response activities.
     
  • Specialized operations, such as water and wastewater utilities, are assisted by other specialized operations until the disaster is over or other aid is provided by the state or federal governments.
     
  • You can use MDWARN simply for finding parts or equipment to make repairs; there doesn't have to be a full-scale emergency.
     
  • MDWARN will be a very good thing for all of Maryland, so please complete the above Interest Form and be ready to get on board.


Thank you for your support.
