AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 26, 2011

 

From:                          Kevin R. Bowman, Fire Chief

 

Subject:                      Resolutions authorizing co-location of Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc. units at Leesburg Fire Stations 63 and 64.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of these agreements with Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc. for co-location of their ambulance units at Leesburg Fire Stations 63 and 64.

 

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 emergency medical services response, treatment, and transport.  This Resolution will formalize an agreement for the co-location of ambulance units in two of our fire stations (already current practice) with Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc whereas our current agreement with Lake Sumter EMS will expire on October 1, 2011 when that corporation will no longer exist. 

 

Options:

1.  Approval of agreements with Lake Emergency Medical Services, Inc., or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Since this is already current practice, there is no fiscal impact to the City of Leesburg.
