Memorandum to City Manager
ORWARN Mutual Aid and Assistance Agreement
Public Works Director
City would receive rapid, short term deployment of emergency services to restore critical operations that have sustained damages from natural or man-made events.
Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Does the City of West Linn want to participate with other Municipalities?
In an effort to provide additional service to the community in an emergency, it would be beneficial for the City to become a member of the Oregon Water/Wastewater Agency Response Network (ORWARN). By becoming a member, the City would enter into a statewide mutual aid and assistance agreement with other members.
Staff recommends becoming a member of ORWARN.
