I checked with special districts and according to them we all have the same 
tort liability of $5 million dollars. They said they covered all fire districts 
in the county.

  I think the question was more open that just District 1,but all ambulance 
services providing service to cover Butte Valley.

  Good afternoon Chris -


  I had a chance to speak with the Chair of our Board of Commissioners, Cheryl 
Hukill, and she tells me the concern voiced to her had to do with differences 
in tort liability law and ambulance services across state lines.


  As I mentioned to you, ambulance services here are provided through Fire 
District 1, which has its own attorney, and not by Klamath County.


  It appears that any agreements, MOUs, etc. addressing comparative liability 
issues would need to be addressed by the Fire District, rather than by the 


  I have copied the fire district's attorney, Steve Hedlund, as well as Fire 
Chief Jim Wenzel, in case you or the Supervisors in Siskiyou County wish to 
pursue these matters further.


  Best wishes,

  - Dave 

  Klamath County Counsel
