EMS County Grant Funds


Contact and/or Presenter Information
Paul DiCicco, EMS Chief

Action Requested
Adoption of Resolution R-17-012 authorizing submission and acceptance of a grant from the Florida Department of Health in the amount of $41,189.00, and adoption of Budget Resolution B-17-024.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida State Statutes 401.133, 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 supplement existing budget allocation.

Funding will be used to purchase two Power Pro EMS Stretchers with expandable patient surfaces and 6 ballistic vest and helmets which will prepare our service for active shooter events that may occur within our county.

This is a non-matching grant.
