Radio Towers Generators

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:

The purpose of this Scope of Work is to provide protection to four Emergency Radio Towers, in Bay County, Florida, funded through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) DR-4399-031-R, as approved by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (Division) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 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.

PROJECT OVERVIEW:

As a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) project, the Sub-Recipient shall provide backup power to four Emergency Radio Towers in Bay County, Florida 32404, 32466, 32410, and 32401.

The HMGP project shall provide protection to four Emergency Radio Towers by the purchase and installation of four 50 kW permanent generators, or the adequate size determined by the vendor and/or an electrical engineer during the bid process to appropriately support these critical communications towers. The proposal also includes the purchase and installation of automatic transfer switches for each of the four communication towers. These new generators will provide necessary reliable backup power to these emergency radio towers and allow them to fully function and provide uninterrupted emergency communications.

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.
