counties are authorized to enter into written mutual aid agreements for
the provision of services provided by the county coroner's office or
office of the medical examiner in such counties. Each county shall be
liable for acts or omissions of its employees or agents when acting
pursuant to such an agreement in the same manner and to the same extent
as if such acts or omissions occurred within the county; and such
employees or agents shall have immunities and privileges for their acts
or omissions when acting pursuant to such an agreement in the same
manner and to the same extent as if such acts or omissions occurred
within the county.

2. Nothing in this section shall be construed to alter the liability
of any county that enters into a mutual aid agreement pursuant to this
section to a third party claimant for any cause of action that arises
out of such agreement or the joint and several liability of any county
that enters into a mutual aid agreement pursuant to this section.
