The Sparks Fire Department maintains cooperative agreements with local, state, and federal fire agencies to provide resources to assist each other with emergencies that exceed the capabilities of a single agency.
The current Cooperative Agreement was negotiated in 2011. The renewal of this agreement will continue to provide SFD with the ability to receive/give mutual aid with Storey County.
This new Cooperative Agreement and Annual Operating Plan will take effect once approved by the Sparks City Council and Storey County. The annual operating plan will then be reviewed on a yearly basis to make adjustments to billing rates and contact information as well as to clearly define the operational aspects of the cooperative agreement.
If approved by the Council, the Cooperative Agreement and Annual Operating Plan will be given to Storey County for approval.
Cooperative agreements are crucial in mitigating those emergencies that exceed the capabilities of a single agency. The Sparks Fire Department and Storey County Fire Department have a long history of working together. The City of Sparks and Storey County assist each other for all risk type of incidents. This cooperative agreement would ensure this relationship continues.
- Council can choose to not approve the Cooperative Agreement and The 2016 Annual Operating Plan between the Sparks Fire Department and Storey County Fire Department.
- Council can accept the recommended motion.
I recommend approval of the Cooperative Agreement and The 2016 Annual Operating Plan between the Sparks Fire Department and the Storey County Fire Department.
