Mutual/Automatic Aid Agreements

The Department participates in the Statewide Mutual Aid System and responds one fire engine anywhere in the State as needed.

The department has made a strong commitment to Automatic aid at the local level. The Department maintains the following written automatic aid agreements:

  • California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection
  • Dunsmuir City Fire Department
  • Weed City Fire Department
  • Mt. Shasta Fire Protection District

The Automatic Aid agreement is equally beneficial to all agencies where each department responds automatically on a year round basis to emergencies within each other’s jurisdiction. This pooling of resources helps each agency combat emergencies of any size or duration. It also insures that the closest emergency resource responds regardless of jurisdiction.
