Install additional generators on County facilities. +10
Aerostats could be tremendously useful as surveillance and communications platforms after the loss of communications. Each can be unreeled to a desired altitude on a synthetic tether about the diameter of a school pencil. When necessary, the tether can house fiber optic strands to download data from the payloads without risk of interference and copper wires to deliver power to the payloads. An aerostat at 500 feet above ground will give a radio nearly 50-kilometer line-of-sight range to the horizon; that exceeds the range of most radio payloads commonly used by field operators.?
?Fire Station # 5 is a one-story critical Facility constructed in 1986. The proposed project will serve to reduce future deaths and damage from high winds by upgrading the existing facility and retrofitting the structure to protect the integrity of the building envelope. This project will entail a roof retrofit, installation of impact-resistant glass, shutters, and hurricane-resistant bay doors. A generator will also be installed to power the roll-up shutters and ensure continuous power throughout the stations.
?Fire Station #3 is a one-story critical facility constructed in 1976. The proposed project will serve to upgrade the existing site to reduce future deaths and damage from high winds by upgrading the existing facility and retrofitting the structure to protect the integrity of the building envelope. The project will consist of a roof retrofit, installation of building opening protections and hurricane resistant apparatus bay doors. A generator will also be installed to power the roll-up shutters and ensure continuous power throughout the stations.
?This project will construct sanitary sewer collection lines to areas in Panama City and adjacent to Panama City that are not currently served by sanitary sewer lines. The project will also implement house-to-sewer connections in areas with existing lines.
?This project will define and implement a series of stormwater management and drainage improvement projects to reduce flooding and improve water quality throughout the City.
?This project will install, as needed, the infrastructure to quickly access and implement bypass pumping if the lift station were to lose power or function in another manner.
?This project includes the construction of potable water ground storage tanks, pumping systems, and backup power to continue flow of potable water to both Panama City hospitals in the event of loss of water from current infrastructure.
?Replacement of old and out of date utility infrastructure with modern materials using improved standards. Utilities included in this project include sanitary sewer, potable water, electrical, and communications.
?The City will construct a multipurpose building to house the emergency operations activities of the City during an event and emergency services during normal operations.
