[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Commissioners of the Township of Nether Providence 2-20-2014 by Ord. No. 774. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Fire Department — See Ch. 21.
The Nether Providence Fire Department (being the Garden City and South Media Fire Companies) is hereby empowered to create and initiate user fees for the delivery of fire and rescue services, personnel, supplies and equipment to the scene of motor vehicle accidents and other incidents upon the highways and roadways of Nether Providence Township. The rate of user fees shall be limited to that which is usual, customary and reasonable for the provision of such services in Delaware County.
The aforementioned user fee shall be filed against the motor vehicle insurance of the recipient of emergency services, representing an add-on cost of the claim for damages of the vehicles, property and/or injuries. In the event services are required relating to utilities causing safety hazards to highway areas, and if such areas are deemed unsafe by emergency responders, user fees shall apply to the utility whose equipment related problems gave rise to the need for an emergency services response. Claim costs shall be filed to the insurance coverage of the owner of a vehicle or property, or other responsible party, as the case may be.
The Nether Providence Township Board of Commissioners is empowered to, by motion, adopt, and from time to time amend, revoke or repeal, rules and regulations consistent with this chapter as it may deem necessary.
