Subject:                      Resolution authorizing acceptance, if funded, for a Lake County Grant of  $7,000.00 to purchase Automatic External defibrillators for use within the City.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends authorizing acceptance, if funded, for a Lake County grant of $7,000.00 to purchase Automatic External defibrillators.

 

Analysis:

The American Heart Association has decreed that Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs), used in conjunction with cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, have saved lives of those in cardiac arrest.  The Fire Department applied for a grant in order to purchase AEDs to be used in Leesburg, Florida.  These AEDs will be placed on emergency vehicles that currently do not have this type of equipment.

 

Options:

1.  Authorize acceptance, if funded, of $7,000.00 for the purchase of AEDs; or,

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact

This grant is non-matching.  There is no cost to the City associated with this equipment’s purchase.
