The Ordinance established a formal application and approval process for the issuance of COPCNs for public and private entities to provide life support services in the county.

The application from Southern Manatee Fire and Rescue District was reviewed by staff based on the requirements set forth in Ordinance 17-041.

Based on the application submitted, review of the application, and compliance with the requirements set forth in Ordinance 17-041, it was found that Southern Manatee Fire and Rescue District submitted a complete application and meets all of the requirements specified in Ordinance 17-041.

Therefore, staff recommends that an Advanced Life Support, Non-Transport COPCN be issued to Southern Manatee Fire and Rescue District.
