Western Region Mutual Assistance Agreement (WRMAA) Annual Meeting – Virtual (Oct 07)

In 2003 the Western Region Mutual Assistance Agreement was created and adopted by many gas and electric utilities throughout Western North America to support one another in the event of emergencies affecting generation, transmission, distribution, or other business operations. Parties involved in the WRMAA meet annually to share best practices, discuss key emergency response issues and, in the fall, review the agreement itself, elect new members of the Executive Committee, and name the annual custodian of the agreement. This program is open to signatories of the Western Region Mutual Assistance Agreement or by invitation.
