BACKGROUND:  This ordinance authorizes purchase orders in the total amount of $200,000.00 for Zoll Medical Corporation debibrillator consumable supplies from existing Universal Term Contracts (UTCs) for the Division of Fire.  The Fire Division needs to purchase these medical supplies for use in daily emergency services and emergency medical service (EMS) operations.  The existing Universal Term Contract was established by the Purchasing Office for such purposes with Zoll Medical Corporation.  These consumable supplies are used in the Fire Division's daily emergency medical (EMS) operations.  This legislation authorizes the Finance and Management Director to associate all General Budget Reservations resulting from this ordinance with the appropriate Universal Term Contract Purchase Agreement with Zoll Medical Corporation for the purchase of these supplies for the Division of Fire.
