County to supplement Imperial’s Fire and Medical Services


Imperial County Fire

EL CENTRO – Tony Rouhotas, Jr., Imperial County Fire Chief, submitted a contract with the City of Imperial to the County Board of Supervisors for the county to supplement the city’s fire services with their own.


This partnership of the county and the City of Imperial began twenty years prior.


The county agrees to provide fire, medical, rescue, hazardous material/hazardous devices responses and fire prevention activities to Imperial for the sum of $896,699 for the fiscal year 2014 – 15.


The fiscal impact would be a neutral cost to the county as the charge to Imperial would cover the projected services.
