APGA, jointly with the American Gas Association (AGA), Northeast Gas Association (NGA), Southern Gas Association (SGA) and MEA Energy, is pleased to announce that the National Mutual Aid Agreement has been finalized. The agreement has been in development for over a year. What does this mean for our APGA members & Mutual Aid Program? Click here to learn more: https://community.apga.org/blogs/simon-cook/2020/09/17/industry-group-finalizes-national-mutual-aid-agree

With #HurricaneSally bearing down on the Gulf Coast, AGA alongside American Public Gas Association, Northeast Gas Association, Southern Gas Association and MEA would like to announce the expansion of the National Mutual Aid Program. This voluntary program allows natural gas utilities from across all of the participating associations to quickly respond to emergencies in a coordinated, efficient and timely manner.
In times of need, utilities are there to help each other out. We have seen the value of this program during disasters like Superstorm Sandy where crews from across the country came out to help restore reservice to residential homes and businesses across the Northeast. https://youtu.be/9vhieXZL15I
