Nc Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement

If you have any questions about the agreement, you can call Dianne at 919-825-2257. If a company has already accepted its mutual assistance agreement and submitted it to the North Carolina Division, it is not obligated to accept another agreement. However, cities and counties are encouraged to ensure that contact information is up to date. If it is not up to date, they must notify emergency management. There are two ways to use the mutual assistance system: 1) Call the neighbouring participating jurisdictions directly and ask for help. It is recommended that you initiate conversations and pre-event planning with your neighbouring jurisdictions before any need for emergency response to mutual assistance. 2) Call emergency management 24 hours a day at 800-858-0368. There are no specific restrictions on the types of funds that can be requested through the mutual assistance system. As a general rule, requests for mutual assistance follow emergency assistance functions that are addressed in emergency response plans such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, fire and emergency services, incident management, communications, infrastructure assistance, Hazmat teams or search and rescue teams.

How do you use the self-help system when you need it? The Mutual Aid system helps “pack” all of North Carolina`s response resources to respond to typical requests or missions. This includes working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to develop and implement nationally recognized response resource standards and meet these standards. There may be costs, including fees: paying the salaries of those responding to the event, operating reaction equipment, replacing the necessary resources before the next disposal, and repairing all damaged devices during the reaction. The applicant and responding jurisdictions are responsible for taking into account the associated costs of response resources for events that are not eligible for federal disaster relief under the Robert T. Stafford Act. Dianne BentonNorth Carolina Emergency Management4236 Mail Service CenterRaleigh, N.C. 27607-3371.
