Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement

scemd-260The message below is from Kim Stenson, Director of SC Emergency Management Division

After considerable coordination, the Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement has been revised and is attached.  The new version will be posted to our website and we will continue to maintain a list of signatories on the website.  We will also forward this agreement to various associations to maximize participation.  Also attached is a database of all current signatories for your reference.  The database is organized alphabetically by county (outlined in red) with respective municipalities and special purpose districts listed below. 

For current signatories, this new agreement does not nullify your current agreement, however, we strongly encourage all participating parties to execute this updated version.  If there is an event where aid is given or received under the Statewide Mutual Aid Agreement, it is extremely important that all the participating parties are operating under the same terms and conditions.  Should a participating party choose not to sign the updated agreement, it may be required to sign a supplemental agreement before it can send or receive aid.

Please review and execute the Agreement and return, via mail, the original signed document.  Originals should be returned to Danielle Maynard at 2779 Fish Hatchery Road, West Columbia, SC 29172.  Please provide a valid email address when you mail the original Agreement.  Once received, we will execute the Agreement and a copy will be sent via email to you.  If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Maynard at dmaynard@emd.sc.gov
