The County Fire Coordinators are dispatched when 3 or more fire companies are dispatched to
a fire or other incident. Their function is to coordinate mutual aid response and stand by fire coverage for the
companies that have been dispatched to an incident. In the case
of a major incident where numerous fire companies are needed, they determine where the resources will
come from so as not to drain a specific area of all of its resources in the event that there is another incident. There is one coordinator for each county fire zone and a chief coordinator. They are all ex volunteer fire chiefs
and are elected to their positions.
