Editor's Note: A resolution adopted 8-23-1982 states that the Village of Endicott elects to participate in the Broome County Mutual Aid Plan. The resolution further provides that the Village will agree to recognize a call for assistance through the Broome County Fire Chiefs, Inc., Communication Center or, at such time, the Broome County Fire Control Center and will comply with the provisions of such plan.
No apparatus of the Fire Department shall be taken beyond the fire limits of the Village to assist at a fire or for any other purpose whatsoever, except by order of the Fire Chief of the Village or his assistant in charge during his absence and subject to the restrictions and conditions hereinafter set forth.
The Fire Chief or his assistant in charge during his absence is authorized, in his discretion, to aid in the extinguishing of fires in another Village, city, town or fire district or territory outside of a city, Village or fire district, within a reasonable distance from the Village or on property immediately adjacent to the Village in which there is a possibility of the fire spreading within the Village limits, under the following conditions:
A request from the city, incorporated village, town and/or fire district must come only from the Mayor, Fire Chief, Acting Fire Chief or such other person as may be designated by mutual agreement.
Calls may be responded to only by such apparatus which, in the judgment of the Fire Chief, can be safely sent without unduly impairing the fire protection within the Village and when highways and weather conditions are favorable.
The city, incorporated village, town and/or fire district requesting assistance must compensate for any loss or damage to such apparatus while answering such call and be responsible to the members of the Fire Department for any injuries suffered or incurred by them while responding to such call, while working at such fire or returning therefrom.
