Agenda Item #48

EMS County Grant Funds


Contact and/or Presenter Information
Stephen Krivjanik, EMS Chief

Action Requested
Adoption of Resolution R-14-170 authorizing submission and acceptance of a grant from Florida Department of Health, in the amount of $46,566.00; and adoption of Budget Resolution B-15-108.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida State Statutes 401.113, Distribution of Grant Funds for Prehospital EMS Systems.

Background Discussion

The EMS County Grant Award Program with Florida Department of Health provides funding for improving and expanding Manatee County's Prehospital Emergency Medical Services System and does not supplant existing budget allocation.

Funding will be used to purchase three automated chest compression devices. Cardiac compression devices set a new standard of care for effective, easy-to-use, non-invasive cardiac support during resuscitation.

This is a non-matching grant.
