Title

Consider acceptance of a $5,000.00 donation from the Atmos Energy Corporation for the Farmers Branch Fire Department; and take appropriate action

 

Body

BACKGROUND:

In August 2021, Atmos Energy expressed an interest in donating $5,000.00 for the Farmers Branch Fire Department.

 

DISCUSSION:

Jan Rugg, Coordinating Manager of Public Affairs for Atmos, reached out to show support for the Farmers Branch Fire Department. After discussing the donation, the Fire Department agreed the funds would best be used to replace ten EMS bags that are currently carry on the ambulances and fire apparatus with the new StatPack G3 Responder EMS bags. The new StatPack G3 Responder EMS bags will organize and secure medications and equipment within internal cells so that Emergency Medical Services can be delivered to the citizens of Farmers Branch.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

The donation provides additional funds for the Fire Department to replace ten EMS bags.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

City Administration recommends accepting the $5,000.00 donation from Atmos Energy Corporation for the Farmers Branch Fire Department.

 

POSSIBLE COUNCIL ACTION:

1. I move to approve the acceptance of the $5,000.00 donation from Atmos Energy Corporation for the Farmers Branch Fire Department.

2. I move to approve the acceptance of the $5,000.00 donation from Atmos Energy Corporation for the Farmers Branch Fire Department with modifications.

3. I move to table the issue for further study or take no action.
