File #: AI 15-109    Version: 1 Name: New EMS Agreement
Type: Informational Report Status: Meeting Item
File created: 2/5/2015 In control: CITY COUNCIL WORKSHOP
On agenda: 2/17/2015 Final action:
Title: Renewal of "Three Party Agreement" Details: Since approximately 1978 the cities of Camas and Washougal, and East County Fire and Rescue (ECFR), have had a continuous interlocal agreement to provide for emergency medical services response and transport in East Clark County. This document has provided the legal framework for Washougal and ECFR to forward their Emergency Services (EMS) levy revenue to Camas and for Camas to provide ambulance response and transport in return. The most recent iteration of this agreement expired at the end of 2014. Now, as a "Two Party Agreement," staff recommends Council approve a new agreement between the City of Camas and ECFR as prepared by counsel. This agreement will be for two years and will contain the same provisions between the parties as the previous version did. ECFR Commissioners are also in favor of this new agreement and will be presenting it for approval at their second meeting in February. Presenter: Nick Swinhart, Fire Chief
