§ 15-7 Conditions of agreement.

The conditions of the intergovernmental cooperation agreement to be entered into between the participating municipalities and the county are generally as follows:
A. 
The municipalities agree that they shall take steps to assure the formation of the Regional Emergency Management Agency, said organization to be responsible for functioning as the emergency management agency in each of the municipalities, and they shall adopt and declare the County Emergency Operations Plan to be the emergency operations plan of each of their municipalities for the purpose of fulfilling the requirement in Subsection 7503 (1) of the Emergency Management Services Code to prepare, maintain and keep current a disaster emergency management plan for each of their municipalities.
B. 
Each municipality shall appoint two individuals to serve as members of the Regional Emergency Management Agency, which will have planning and resource development responsibilities for emergency operations within the territorial limits of the municipalities that have formed the Regional Emergency Management Agency. Actions taken by the Regional Emergency Management Agency must be ratified by the individual municipality governing bodies, as provided within the E.M.S. Code.
C. 
The Regional Emergency Management Agency will recommend one of the individuals named to the Agency to serve as Regional Emergency Management Coordinator and another to serve as Deputy Emergency Management Coordinator of the Regional Emergency Management Agency, with responsibility for operational control of emergency response operations within the territorial limits of the municipalities that have formed the Regional Emergency Management Agency. The Regional Emergency Management Coordinator will be subject to the direction and control of the elected officials of the municipality affected by the emergency situation. In no case, however, shall the Regional Emergency Management Coordinator and his/her Deputy be from the same municipality. If two or more municipalities are affected by the same emergency situation, the Regional Emergency Management Coordinator shall be subject to the direction and control of the elected officials of the municipalities affected by the emergency situation.

At the end of this period of time, any municipality may withdraw from the Perry County Regional Emergency Management Agency after providing a) 30 days' written notice to the other member municipalities and b) acceptance by the Regional Director of Emergency Services of a stand-alone emergency operations plan for that municipality. The establishing intergovernmental cooperation agreement, however, shall continue to exist among the remaining municipalities.
