Partner police and fire agencies pay for services provided by South Sound 911 through cost allocation. The cost allocation model is a valuable cost-sharing tool which ensures fair and equitable charges to the partner agencies. All of the participating agencies are billed on the level of service they receive. This “fair share” cost allocation model is updated on an annual basis and uses distinct methodology for each operational division.
