Latrobe/EDH fire agreement is a done deal
The El Dorado Hills Fire District will share initial dispatch responsibility for an estimated 60 emergency calls in Latrobe each year with the Latrobe Fire Protection District under the terms of a agrrement that both district boards approved last week. The annual cost to Latrobe is $25,000.
The agreement formalizes and strengthens a role that El Dorado Hills currently provides its fiscally strapped southerly neighbor under the county mutual aid agreement. Ambulance response remains covered by the county Joint Powers Authority, which is outside the agreement.
