Lawton, Comanche County renew mutual aid agreement

LAWTON, Okla._The City of Lawton and Comanche County renewed a mutual aid agreement Monday that will make sure FEMA disaster funding is not restricted in case of an emergency.

In times of an emergency where the city or county needs to call on the other for mutual aid, the other will help and not charge for services until they've worked the scene for more than eight hours. That goes along with FEMA regulations, which state the aiding department must start billing after 8 hours.

FEMA was prompted to make these regulations after the deadly tornadoes in Moore two years ago. In that case, FEMA funding was restricted because mutual aid parties did not bill.
