The project is for the purchase and installation of an emergency system to reduce and/or mitigate the damage that might otherwise occur from severe weather or other hazards.
As a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) project, the Sub-Recipient shall provide backup power to the Bay County Sheriff's Office Jail, located at 5700 Star Lane, Panama City, Florida 32404. Coordinates: (30.226568, -85.562317). The HMGP project shall provide protection to the Bay County Sheriff's Office Jail by the purchase and installation of a 450 kW permanent generator, or the adequate size determined by the vendor and/or an electrical engineer during the bid process to appropriately support the critical facility and two automatic transfer switches. The project will allow the Bay County Sheriff's Office Jail to remain operational during future power outages. The generator(s) shall be protected against a 500-year flood event by implementing specific activities or by locating the generator(s) outside the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and shall be protected against the wind with a rated enclosure based on its location requirements. Activities shall be completed in strict compliance with Federal, State, and Local Rules and Regulations.
