The Department on Aging has received a donation of $10,000 from UNC Healthcare to be <br /> used for wellness supplies in the Senior Health Coordination annual grant fund. This <br /> budget amendment provides for the receipt of these funds in the annual grant fund, outside <br /> of the General Fund. <br /> SOCIAL JUSTICE IMPACT: The following Orange County Social Justice Goals are <br /> applicable to this item: <br /> • GOAL: ENSURE ECONOMIC SELF-SUFFICIENCY <br /> The creation and preservation of infrastructure, policies, programs and funding <br /> necessary for residents to provide shelter, food, clothing and medical care for <br /> themselves and their dependents. <br /> Emergency Services <br /> 2. Due to ongoing supply chain impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, ambulance <br /> manufacturers are projecting at least a 24 month production/delivery timeframe from the <br /> date of order. Manufacturers have recommended emergency medical services agencies <br /> consider advance purchasing replacement units for this period of time to ensure delivery. <br /> Orange County Emergency Services will require $1,164,000 in order to purchase three (3) <br /> Ambulances as well as required equipment which are due to be replaced in the upcoming <br /> years. This amendment will provide funding for these ambulances now to maintain <br /> continuity of services in the department. A staff amendment to the Manager's <br /> Recommended Capital Investment Plan will be proposed to reduce Emergency Services <br />
