Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Provision of fire protection or emergency medical services by a for profit entity. Provides that any county, city or town that, as of June 30, 2000, provided fire protection or emergency medical services for its citizens through the utilization of a fire department, emergency services personnel or fire protection personnel, may not thereafter provide fire protection or emergency medical services by utilizing an entity that provides fire protection for the county, city or town for profit under contract or other agreement and that is not a county, city or town, or a department of a county, city or town, or a state or federal agency, unless first approved by a majority of voters at a referendum to be held on the date of the next general election. The bill provides, however, that a county, city or town shall not be required to obtain referendum approval prior to contracting for such services, for a period not exceeding 12 months, if the county, city or town has, by ordinance or resolution, declared a need to temporarily supplement its existing personnel.
