In March of 1992, Georgetown Borough, Hookstown Borough, and Greene Township agreed to a formal document for intergovernmental cooperation to provide aid and assistance for fire protection and emergency services to each other.

For Greene Township, this agreement was enabled via Ordinance 1-92, the Emergency Services Ordinance.  The Ordinance created the Emergency Services Board to ensure the continued provision of fire protection and emergency services for the communities of Hookstown, Georgetown, and Greene Township. 

Each municipality contributes 1 mil of real estate tax to the board. The board can obtain any remaining income through fees and charges to Emergency Services Users.
