MAINE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
Revised Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement Now Online
June 24, 2014
In 2009, then Governor John Baldacci signed into law PL 2009 c. 135, An Act Authorizing Statewide Mutual Aid Among First Responder Agencies. This law allowed “local first responder agencies to provide emergency services such as fire, law enforcement, emergency management or medical services as necessary upon another town’s request without any additional agreement or contract.”
Five years later, several changes have been made to the original agreement and supporting statutes:
• Under PL 2009 c. 135, all towns are part of the agreement but may adopt a local ordinance to opt out; no community to date has opted out.
The updated Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement document can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat format here.
