Staff recommends approval of the Advanced Life Support contract with Lake Emergency Medical Services Inc.
Effective October 1, 2011, Lake Sumter Emergency Medical Services will cease to exist. Sumter County will no longer participate with that agency. Therefore, a new corporation – Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc. will provide emergency medical services response, treatment, and transport. This Inter-local Agreement defines the roles and responsibilities of each of the agencies involved in providing emergency medical services in Lake County. For many years, Leesburg Fire Department has provided basic and advanced life support emergency medical services to its citizens. By signing this contract, Lake County and Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc. will be required to return, in monthly installments in advance, to the City of Leesburg 0.1 mil collected for Emergency Medical Services by Lake County. The dollar amount raised by a one-tenth mil (0.1 ml) ad valorem tax levy on property in the City limits is designed to recompense the City of Leesburg for assisting Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc. in providing patient care to the citizens of Leesburg.
