DeKALB – DeKalb recently joined the Illinois Public Works Mutual Aid Network, which means the city would both give and receive resources during disasters and emergencies.

The network, based in Urbana, launched in January 2009 and is similar to mutual aid networks police and law enforcement agencies have established, according to a news release. To become a member, DeKalb officials signed an agreement with the network and submitted a listing of resources.
