AI 15-109 1D.New EMS AgreementInformational ReportRenewal 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.

REP 15-091 1E.2015 SAFER GrantInformational ReportApplication for the 2015 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant for Firefighter Staffing Details: The application period for the 2015 SAFER grant for firefighter staffing is open February 9 through March 6. This grant would pay for the salary and benefits of three firefighters for two years. There would be no obligation to maintain the firefighters after that period of time. The only stipulation of all SAFER grants is that, if the grant is awarded and accepted, the department cannot lay off or attrition out any positions during that two year period. Council will recall that the Camas-Washougal Fire Department (CWFD) received a SAFER grant award in 2012 to hire three firefighters. That grant expired in 2014. Unfortunately the City did not have the funding to keep those positions after the grant expired, but due to some well-timed retirements, staff was able to avoid laying off any of those firefighters. The department is planning to apply for the 2015 SAFER grant and City Administration supports this effort. This was an informational report to advise   Action details Video Video
