The North Yorkshire Fire Authority has voted in favour of sharing 999 calls with the Cornish Brigade during busy times.
The Authority says it's teaming up with Cornwall because the two areas are unlikely to suffer major incidents, like flooding, at the same time.
The Authority says it's currently updating the call answering system. It'll trial the shared system with Cornwall next year and it's likely to be a couple of years before it's put in place.
