Staff recommends applying/acceptance of the Florida Department of Health grant to purchase eight (8) Automatic External Defibrillators.
The Fire Department currently has three Automatic External Defibrillators. These AED’s are all over ten years old with two of the three AED’s at the end of their functional life. This grant will allow the Fire Department to replace and purchase additional units for special events hosted in the City of Leesburg. The resolution also gives the authority to purchase the equipment from Physio-Control, which is on the State Bid contract list.
1. Accept the Florida Department of Health grant, or;

The total cost is $18,500. The Florida Department of Health will provide 75% of the cost totaling $13,875.00 and the City of Leesburg will contribute 25% totaling $4,625.00. Funds are available in the FY 2011-2012 contingency budget for the city match. A budget adjustment will be necessary to add the additional revenue and expense into the current budget.
