OTTAWA, Jan. 22, 2016 /CNW/ - Hydro Ottawa is proud to announce it recently signed a formal agreement to become a member of the North Atlantic Mutual Assistance Group (NAMAG). Made up of 29 utilities from across north-east Canada and the United States, NAMAG members agree to deliver not-for-profit assistance during times of crisis.
Designed to increase coordination of resources and support, NAMAG empowers participating utilities to quickly action mutual assistance plans to restore power whenever and wherever assistance is needed. NAMAG utilities represent approximately 36 million customers.
"Hydro Ottawa has a proud history of providing services to other utilities dealing with weather-related emergencies on both sides of the border. Besides shelter and water, there is probably nothing more essential than electricity during a time of crisis; especially in a north-eastern winter. The North Atlantic Mutual Assistance Group is something that speaks to our values as an organization, and recognizes the importance of being a good neighbour."
- Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive Officer
