“This new location gives our first responders a dedicated location to stage and stand at the ready for a rapidly growing part of our community,” said Manatee County Commission Chair Mike Rahn.

The new facility serving north county communities will feature nearly 4,500 square feet of space with an apparatus bay to house up to four first-response vehicles, offices for district leadership and EMS crews, kitchen, day room, a decontamination room, laundry and sleeping quarters. Manatee County EMS is the primary 911-emergency response service to the residents and visitors of Manatee County—responding to all pre-hospital medical calls for service in the 748-square miles of the county and 150 miles of coastal waterways.

“Public Safety has always been a top priority for Manatee County,” said At-Large Commissioner Jason Bearden. “This shows that continuous commitment.”
