    Lightbulb Automatic Aid Agreement examples

    for our mutual aid partners.

    I'm looking for someone who has a copy of their automatic aid agreement with their mutual aid partners, and who is willing to share it.

    In reviewing our old agreements within our local emergency operations plan, I see that we need to update ours right away. After discussing this with our neighboring fire departments, I do not think that some quite understand what an Automatic Aid agreement actually entails.

    An example from another area may help them understand if we can find a mutual aid association willing to share theirs with us.

    my email is jam24u@windstream.net

    confidentiality will be assured.

    Thanks,, Jim Mason

    If someone or multiple people could send me a copy as well I would greatly appreciate it. We are looking to implement automatic aid with a neighboring department after the first if the year, and I'm unsure if the rest of my department actually knows what automatic aid entails, so I'd like to show an example or two to the chief. My email is xvinchenzox@gmail.com. Thanks.

    Default Automatic Aid

    One issue that you could check into, in regard to automatic aid (AAA), is whether ISO will give you points for having an AAA in place and using it.

    Having a water tanker/tender, ladder truck or other piece of apparatus from a neighboring jurisdiction responding to your jurisdiction first due, may allow you to benefit with ISO points.

    When setting up your AAA arrangement with neighboring jurisdiction(s), the ISO issue can help you to obtain more cooperation in securing those arrangements. Same goes with getting the approval from your authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) (city council, fire district board, etc.) to approve the agreement. Some AHJ officials may question the expense of sending fire apparatus and manpower outside the jurisdiction on a regular basis. If you can show the benefits of receiving aid, as well as any ISO points, that will help justify the approval.

    Unfortunately in LA, under the rating system, you are penalized for automatic mutual aid.

    Once your outgoing automatic aid exceeds a certain percentage of your fire-related calls, you will have points deducted from your rating.

    You receive no credit for incoming mutual aid.

    For that reason, you see very little automatic mutual aid in the state.

    There are no point deductions for requested mutual aid.
