THE CITY OF 16 <br /> CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br /> pLEASANTON <br /> June 19, 2018 <br /> Fire <br /> TITLE: APPROVE THE THIRD AMENDMENT TO THE EMERGENCY MEDICAL <br /> SERVICES FIRST RESPONDER ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT SERVICES <br /> AGREEMENT (FRALS) BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE COUNTY OF <br /> ALAMEDA <br /> SUMMARY <br /> In November 2011, the City of Pleasanton, along with all other agencies/cities in <br /> Alameda County that provide First Responder Advanced Life Support (FRALS) <br /> services, entered into a five (5) year agreement with Alameda County that defined <br /> FRALS standards, detailed the reimbursement funding schedule and memorialized <br /> other pertinent matters as related to the delivery of FRALS services. The initial <br /> agreement expired on October 31, 2016 and, in May 2016, the City signed the First <br /> Amendment to the agreement extending the term to October 31, 2017. The Second <br /> Amendment, signed by the City on September 22, 2017, extended the term eight <br /> (8) months to June 30, 2018, kept the same reimbursement formula and transferred <br /> ownership of ten (10) pieces of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) equipment formally <br /> owned and maintained by the County to the City. The Third Amendment extends the <br /> term through June 30, 2019 and discontinues the payments made to the participating <br /> Cities intended to offset some of the costs of providing paramedic services effective <br /> July 1, 2018. <br /> RECOMMENDATION <br /> Pending the outcome of the scheduled June 20, 2018 meeting between the participating <br /> FRALS cities and the County, approve and authorize the City Manager to sign the Third <br /> Amendment to the FRALS agreement extending the term to June 30, 2019, and <br /> recognize the revenue impacts in the City budget due to the discontinued payments <br /> from the County effective July 1, 2018. <br /> FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br /> In consideration for the services provided in support of the agreement, the County had <br /> subsidized each agency/city a specified amount for each FRALS unit maintained, with a <br /> 2% annual escalator. The City maintains five (5) FRALS units and the annual <br /> reimbursement per the Second Amendment for the past year totaled $241,523.28. Per <br /> the Third Amendment, these reimbursement payments will terminate effective July 1, <br /> 2018. These revenue reductions are reflected in the City's FY2018/19 budget. <br />
