AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 26, 2011

 

From:                          Kevin R. Bowman, Fire Chief

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing the execution of a Fire Dispatch Agreement with Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Fire Dispatch Agreement with Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc.

 

Analysis:

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 fire dispatch services for Leesburg and all other fire departments in Lake County.  This Resolution solidifies our agreement with the new organization – Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc.

 

Options:

1.  Approval of this Resolution, or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact

Because this is current practice, there is no fiscal impact to the City of Leesburg, Florida.  Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc. will provide fire dispatch services to the City of Leesburg Fire Department in exchange for allowing two of its ambulances to cohabitate in two of the Leesburg Fire Stations (Station 63 at the airport and Station 64 in Okahumpka).
