Facilities, equipment, training and other support to Big Canoe fire and EMT personnel will be of
the highest practical level to ensure their safety and effectiveness.
Every effort will be made to ensure that the counties provide emergency service response in a manner commensurate with other comparable areas of the counties and the needs of Big Canoe.
Agreements may be entered into with Dawson and Pickens Counties to provide Big Canoe
resources for support outside the gates. That support will not infringe upon or otherwise compromise the primary obligation to provide services within Big Canoe. The POA Insurance program will include coverage for this service to the community.
The General Manager will provide periodic written reports, at least annually, to the POA Board
on the effectiveness of the combined county/POA program. At a minimum, those reports will
include data on internal and external response times, county and POA ISO ratings (or one rating
if combined), self-assessments, actions taken to improve services and any other relevant information.
Interim reports are required whenever any policy as stated above is not effective.
