Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an Interlocal Agreement for Automatic Aid Assistance between Emergency Service Districts of Travis and Williamson Counties and the cities of Austin, Leander, Cedar Park, Round Rock, and Georgetown.

 

Body

This agreement will connect Travis and Williamson County fire and emergency services agencies through an integrated system of sharing resources and automated dispatches based on proximity and capabilities (Closest unit). The agreement is a more comprehensive arrangement to include all future agencies that come into the agreement.  The ESD's and Cities listed in this agreement desire to augment resources and capabilities within the geographic boundaries of their respective service areas by responding and dispatching calls on an automatic basis so that the nearest available unit responds, regardless of the jurisdiction involved.
