Does your State, County or government agency have a Mutual Aid Agreement? If not - Why?
As the demand for responding to disasters and emergencies of all types across the nation have increased and
become more complex, emergency management agencies at all levels of government are turning increasingly
to the use of mutual aid as a means for providing the resources and capabilities on both inter- and intra-state
events to augment disaster response capabilities of state and local governments.
Mutual aid is different government agencies working together during an emergency to support each other
with resources and technical expertise, regardless of which agency has jurisdiction for the incident. In a
mutual aid situation, agencies agree to assist each other, crossing jurisdictional boundaries and pooling
resources to achieve a common goal.
This program will discuss the fundamentals of mutual aid agreements, explain how your agency can get
involved and provide an appreciation of what to expect.
The program has been approved for .2 CEUs or 2 PDHs. Please note there is a $7 fee per non-member
individual requesting CEUs - there is no fee for members.
