Minnesotans benefit from the emergency services delivered by cities. Sometimes fire and police services are provided directly to residents, other times cities may collaborate with one another or a county for emergency services. Each of these services, though, presents a unique set of management and liability issues. LMCIT has developed materials and training to help members navigate these issues.
