It is requested the Board approve the Automatic Aid Agreement with Patrick Space Force Base for Fire Protection and Emergency Services to cover unincorporated areas of South Cocoa Beach and authorize the Chair to execute the agreement.  It is also requested the Board authorize the County Manager, or designee, the authority to execute any revisions to the agreement, execute contract amendments, renewals, or extensions as agreed to by both parties and as outlined in the agreement, upon the review and approval of the County Attorney’s Office and Risk Management.


Additionally, request the District 2 Commissioner, Bryan Lober, be designated to represent the Board at an agreement signing ceremony, currently scheduled to be held on Wednesday, August 4th, at Patrick Space Force Base.


This auto aid mirrors other agreements currently in place and has been reviewed by Patrick Space Force Base Judge Advocate General, the County Attorney’s Office and Risk Management, with a recommendation to approve.
