EMS County Grant Funds


Contact and/or Presenter Information
Stephen Krivjanik, EMS Chief

Action Requested
Adoption of Resolution R-15-186 authorizing submission and acceptance of a grant from Florida Department of Health, in the amount of $41,601.00, and adoption of Budget Resolution B-16-019.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida State Statutes 401.113, Distribution of Grant Funds for Pre-hospital EMS Systems.

Background Discussion

The EMS County Grant Award Program with Florida Department of Health provides funding for improving and expanding Manatee County's Pre-hospital Emergency Medical Services System and does not supplant existing budget allocation.

Funding will be used to purchase three automated chest compression devices.  Cardiac compression devices set a new standard of care for effective, easy-to-use, non-invasive cardiac support during resuscitation.

This is a non-matching grant.
