The combined Northville-Plymouth fire department could see increased mutual aid support if the department accepts proposals from two neighboring communities.
At a Northville-Plymouth Fire Advisory Board meeting Monday at Northville City Hall, the board reviewed requests from Plymouth Township and the City of Novi for potential automatic mutual aid agreements, in which the departments would help one another in emergency situations, according to meeting minutes provided by the City of Plymouth.
Northville-Plymouth Fire Chief Jim Allen told the board the agreements were still in the discussion stage and no formal agreements have been reached. Allen brought the proposals for mutual aid to the Northville and Plymouth city managers for review.
If an agreement is proposed, Allen will bring it back to the board for review.
