Background Discussion

The State of Florida, Division of Management Services, provides funding to eligible local governments for Enhanced 911 (E911) systems.

The E911 State grant application was approved for submission by the BCC on August 19, 2013.

Grant funding was awarded on January 23, 2014, for replacement of Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) and 911 Call Taking Workstations located in the Manatee County Emergency Communications Center.

This is a non-matching grant.

Grant award will only fund one PSAP and a portion of the Primary Recorder System due to eligibility criteria.  Approximately $20K will be needed from General Funds to purchase the recording system.  This amount has been recommended in the FY15 budget.
