    Question EMS Equipment for Fire Department

    Has anyone been successful for EMS equipment through AFG for a Fire Department that does not provide EMS transport? Several of my departments that I write for provide EMS first response on all medical calls but do not transport. Their has been some discussion on applying for newer AED's and Automatic CPR devices. Any help appreciated.....

    Marc,

    We were successful in 2008 to replace our AED's as a non-transporting FD. Send me an email through my profile and I'll send you a copy.

    New version of NFPA (1901-2008) requires each apparatus carry:

    one traffic vest for each riding position, 5 fluorescent orange traffic cones, 5 illuminated warning devices (such as flares), 1 automatic external defibrillator (AED).

    I think this is enough to justify a grant app. Your apparatus only has to conform to the version of 1901 at the time of mfg. But the update to 1901, and addition of the equipment listed, is in order to improve FF safety (the 1st priority of the AFG program).

    The AED's are just one part of the project. Anyone received any advanced equipment?
