Title: Resolution to Approve the Interlocal Agreement Between City of Dearborn and City of Ann Arbor for Fire Vehicles
Resolution to Approve the Interlocal Agreement Between City of Dearborn and City of Ann Arbor for Fire Vehicles
We recommend your approval of the attached Interlocal Agreement between the City of Dearborn and City of Ann Arbor.
The City of Ann Arbor became licensed as a basic life support transport agency and purchased an ambulance earlier in 2023. To address coverage gaps in case the current ambulance is unavailable due to repairs, or to temporarily add an additional unit as needed, this agreement allows the City of Ann Arbor to lease a reserve ambulance from the City of Dearborn.
Although Ann Arbor's need is for an ambulance, the agreement was written generically to allow for the sharing of other fire department vehicles as well.
The City of Dearborn and the City of Ann Arbor ("Parties") agree to lend to each other front line fire vehicles on a temporary basis in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. "Front line fire vehicles" is limited to all vehicles designed primarily for firefighting operations, special event vehicles, and transport ambulances ("Vehicles").
The Parties agree that all Vehicles must be primarily available for its jurisdiction's use first. Therefore, Vehicles will only be available whenever not in use by the lending jurisdiction.
Each municipality has the right to initiate a request for a Vehicle by contacting the other municipality's Fire Chief or appropriate designee. The Parties agree that initiating a request for a Vehicle does not guarantee a Vehicle will be provided by the other municipality. Confirmation of a request to use a Vehicle at a future date may be revoked by the loaning party if a need arises for use of the Vehicle by the loaning municipality.
Budget/Fiscal Impact: The cost for this is anticipated to remain low and shall be paid for from the Fire Department General Fund budget should the need arise to utilize a vehicle from the City of Dearborn under this contract.
