The Augusta Commission has approved a mutual aid agreement between the Augusta and Hephzibah fire departments, allowing the nearest fire station to an emergency to respond.
Before, the departments only worked their districts - and left some homeowners, who were close to the other department, waiting longer for help.
It's expected to lower insurance costs and cut down on response times.
