Provides immunity from civil liability to certain persons acting under such mutual aid agreements. Specifies that emergency responders from outside Indiana rendering mutual aid within Indiana under such mutual aid agreements remain employees and agents of their respective employers and jurisdictions. Provides that benefits enjoyed by emergency responders rendering mutual aid under such mutual aid agreements shall extend to the services the emergency responders perform outside their respective jurisdictions as if those services had been rendered in their own jurisdiction. Requires such mutual aid agreements to be approved in the same manner as interlocal cooperation agreements are approved.
