Action Requested
  • Adoption of  Resolution R-17-123 authorizing submission and acceptance of a grant from Florida Department of Health in the amount of $38,378.00;
  • Authorization to execute the EMS County Grant Application; and
  • Adoption of Budget Resolution B-18-012.

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 two Stryker Power Pro Ambulance Cots with expanded patient surface.

This is a non-matching grant.
