Mutual Aid Project

The Mutual Aid Project is an effort from Austin, Texas.

Local IT Innovation of the Year

The City of Austin went live in February 2022 with its Mutual Aid Project. Working with partners in Williamson County, the city used a platform called Tellus that allows fire dispatchers to see where the fire units of Georgetown, Cedar Park, Leander, Round Rock and Williamson County are when dispatching an incident. If one of those units is close to an incident, the system will automatically dispatch that unit.
