Submitted For: John Piper From: Joan Lenzmeier, City Clerk

INTRODUCTION
Council is asked to approve Addendum A to Joint Powers Agreement authorizing Staff participation in the Minnesota Task Force One Urban Search and Rescue Team (MN-TF1).
DISCUSSION
A Joint Powers Entity was created with five jurisdictions which include the Cities of Edina, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Rochester and Dakota County.  These entities form the basis of the Minnesota Task Force One Urban Search and Rescue Team (MN-TF1).  Members of MN-TF1 are trained in all aspects of technical rescue, including rope rescue, confined space rescue, trench collapse rescue and structural collapse rescue.  In addition, they are trained in various search techniques, hazardous materials, and advanced medical care.

The city has a rostered member of the MN-TF1 and, in order for the City to continue to participate in the MN-TF1, a signed agreement is required.  Addendum A to the Joint Powers Agreement will serve as authorization for the City's continued participation.

Addendum A, followed by the full Joint Powers Agreement is attached for review.
RECOMMENDATION
Authorize execution of Addendum A to Joint Powers Agreement to allow continued participation in the Minnesota Task Force One urban Search and Rescue Team.
