The purpose of the Carroll County Emergency Services Advisory Council (ESAC) is to provide a functional structure that ensures input from volunteer, career, and citizen stakeholders is provided and considered during the policymaking and policy review process and to keep stakeholder representatives engaged in the integrated, countywide Fire, Rescue, and EMS system. In addition, ESAC is tasked with providing input on the annual Fire, Rescue, and EMS budget and staying abreast of current Fire, Rescue, and EMS issues.
