[HISTORY: Adopted by the Common Council of the City of North Tonawanda 9-18-2012. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The City hereby establishes a cost recovery program which allows the City to be reimbursed, to the extent legally permissible, by those individuals utilizing emergency services provided by the Fire Department. The fees are established in § 36A-2.
The following fee schedule shall apply to the Fire Department cost recovery program as required by § 36A-1 above:
Light rescue service: $355.
General patient handling.
Immobilization, treatment and removal from a vehicle without the need for hydraulic or other power tools.
Need for standing takedown immobilization procedures for occupants located outside of the vehicle.
EMS treatment provided to patients struck by another vehicle.
If a DEC number is issued for a spill, the responsible party (not the auto insurance agency) will be billed directly for all actual costs, including costs to other departments and agencies. In this situation, if there is a need for other types of service, then the auto insurance agency may be billed also.
