Statement of Legislative and Financial Impact:

I. Nature of Request:

RESOLUTION ACCEPTING THE DONATION OF A 28 PASSENGER BUS FROM BROWN COACH (EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT)


II. Justification:

The Montgomery County Emergency Management Office has been working with our County Fire Departments and EMS Agencies to come up with an appropriate rehabilitation policy for our first responders.  A copy of this policy is attached to this resolution.  The policy has been approved and adopted by both the EMS Advisory Board and the Fire Advisory Board. 

The policy pertains to treating first responders when in high heat situations, extreme cold situations, heavy physical activity situations and/or the general use of 2 or more SCBA tanks at a structure fire.  This bus will allow a location for first responders to get out of the elements, have vital signs checked and to check general health and safety before returning to action. 

The vehicle is in great shape and has been checked by our DPW mechanics, they believe it should not provide us with any major difficulty in the near future.  They checked the frame, the brake lines, gas line, under coat, engine and interior.  We will have to cover it on County insurance, however any expense for repair should be able to be covered within the emergency management budget. 

We are also in communication with Eastern Medical Support and it appears a donation will be coming to assist us with some work within the interior of the bus to make adaptations to meet our specific needs.  It is our goal to complete this work without any cost to the County. 

Please feel free to contact me should you want to look at the bus yourself or have any other questions, thank you!


III. Legislative Impact:

The Montgomery County Legislature has the authority to authorize acceptance of personal property.


IV. Financial Impact:

Potential repairs in the future and adding the vehicle to our insurance.

Seconded by: Dimond

WHEREAS, the Emergency Management Office applied for and received the FY2017 State Emergency Performance Grant (EMPG) to assist with the payment of maintenance agreements within the emergency management office for things that assist first responders and the community throughout Montgomery County; and

WHEREAS, the Emergency Management Office has been notified by the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services that Montgomery County has been awarded $23,688.00, to assist in providing important services throughout Montgomery County; and 

WHEREAS, the revenue for the Emergency Management EMPG grant was included in the 2018 adopted budget but the corresponding appropriation was excluded awaiting approval from NYS.

Statement of Legislative and Financial Impact:

I. Nature of Request:

RESOLUTION ACCEPTING THE FY2017 STATE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERFORMANCE GRANT(EMPG) FROM NYS HOMELAND SECURITY AND AMENDING THE 2018 OPERATING BUDGET (EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT)


II. Justification:

This resolution replaces the resolution form last month for the purchase of a vehicle.  The State Homeland Security found out we were going to share the vehicle and allow DPW to use it and they said absolutely not.  So instead of asking for another $23,688 to meet the needs of a 50/50 grant we are adjusting the budget to take care of maintenace on our microwave system, the smart phone APP, our copier and our records management system for emergency management. 

Part of the issue is the budget dates and grant dates, then remembering to make sure we make the appropriate changes.  We also never know if we will get the grant or how much the total will be, which causes adjustments. 


III. Legislative Impact:

Pursuant to Article 2 of the Charter the Montgomery County Legislature has the power to make appropriations.


IV. Financial Impact:

Just the changes that are noted above, this is a 50/50 grant.
