Body

Item Summary

 

Entry into an intergovernmental agreement that defines for the participating parties the emergency management terms and procedures which will be used among participating parties for dispatching mutual aid assistance to any affected area in accordance with local ordinances, resolutions, emergency plans or agreements. The previous agreement was for ten (10) years and lapsed in October 2018.

 

Background

 

The purpose of this Compact is to define for the participating parties the emergency management terms and procedures which will be used among participating parties for dispatching mutual aid assistance to any affected area in accordance with local ordinances, resolutions, emergency plans or agreements. Contracting authority for political subdivisions of Arizona for this Compact is based upon A.R.S. § 26-308 which provides that each county and incorporated city and town of the state may appropriate and expend funds, make contracts and obtain and distribute equipment, materials and supplies for emergency management purposes.

 

A Requesting Party which needs assistance in excess of its own resources and existing automatic mutual aid or local mutual aid due to an emergency is authorized to request assistance from any party to this Compact. All requests for assistance from the State must be coordinated through the Requesting Party’s county emergency operations center, or tribal emergency operations center (whichever is applicable).
