Generator Loaner Program

With generous support from International Medical Corps (IMC), FACHC has positioned several portable generators at health centers (host sites) across the state. IMC has been a vital response partner in Florida, further assisting health centers impacted by recent disasters. FACHC continues this valuable partnership through ongoing communication and planned training initiatives. 

Health centers in need can utilize these generators for powering select equipment (e.g. vaccine refrigerators, charging stations, small A/C units) in the event of an emergency power disruption. Generators provided to the host sites are considered FACHC equipment, and all movement of the units must be reported to FACHC for tracking purposes. Generators can be used by the host site as needed, and in an emergency event, the generators can be deployed to additional health centers upon request. See below for guidelines and information on requesting use of these generators. 

 

Health centers requesting use of the generators are responsible for the following: 

  • Picking-up and returning the generators to the original host sites and notifying FACHC of generator location and status
  • Ensuring the generators are operated and maintained according to manufacturer instructions and safety requirements, and that provisions have been made for setting up and fueling the generators (don’t forget extension cords) 
  • Reporting any misuse, mechanical issues, misplacement of equipment to FACHC immediately  

Host Site locations: Tallahassee, Panama City, High Springs, Clearwater, Vero Beach, West Palm Beach, and Miami 

 

Process for requesting use of generators: 

  • Complete Generator Request Form and email to [email protected]
  • FACHC will contact closest host site(s) to confirm availability and follow-up with requesting site 
  • FACHC will connect the requesting site and host site to coordinate pick-up & drop-off*

*Requesting/receiving sites will keep FACHC informed of the generators’ location and operational status for the duration of use.
