Staff recommends authorizing acceptance, if funded, for a Lake County grant of $7,000.00 to purchase Automatic External defibrillators.
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.
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
This grant is non-matching. There is no cost to the City associated with this equipment’s purchase.
