Action Requested
Execution of Interlocal Agreement between Sarasota County, Manatee County, East Manatee Fire Rescue District, and Southern Manatee Fire & Rescue District for Fire and Emergency Medical Services on University Parkway Corridor, rescinding and replacing the current "Interlocal Agreement for Emergency Medical Services to Vehicle Crashes on University Parkway Corridor" dated May 2006.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Background Discussion
University Parkway is a heavily-traveled, east-west thoroughfare located in the Fire and/or Emergency Medical Service Districts of Sarasota, Manatee, East Manatee, and Southern Manatee. Since Sarasota and Manatee each operate Public Safety Communications Centers which receive emergency 9-1-1 calls from locations within its respective jurisdiction, and provide Fire and/or Emergency Medical Services in response to an emergency 9-1-1 call, all parties believe it is mutually advantageous and in the best interest of public health, safety, and welfare of their respective citizens to enter into a mutual aid agreement setting forth the emergency response obligations of each of the parties to fire and medical emergencies which occur on, and emergency 9-1-1 calls that emanate from, University Parkway.

Because the University Parkway Corridor has seen significant growth, bordering Fire Rescue and EMS station locations have changed since the original Interlocal Agreement was executed.  This updates boundaries for responses to emergencies along the University Parkway Corridor in relation to closest Fire Rescue and EMS station location regardless of jurisdictional boundaries.

Adopting this Interlocal agreement will ensure quick and efficient fire and medical response to University Parkway emergencies.
