Emergency service workers in the ACT and NSW will work more closely together in a crisis after an agreement on cross-border cooperation was signed yesterday.
A Memorandum of Understanding signed by ACT Chief Minister Jon Stanhope and NSW Emergency Services Minister Tony Kelly will formalise arrangements when staff of the ACT Emergency Services Authority and the NSW State Emergency Service work together.
The agreement covers a range of emergency service functions including training, safety procedures, deployment of staff and resources, command and control structures, and the sharing of information and expertise.
