    Default 2013 AFG EMS Question

    Iím trying to get a game plan in place for the 2013 AFG grant. My career department (EMS, non-affiliated) is looking to replace our 2001 ambulance with well over 200,000 miles. We average a total of 3,500 calls per year (emergency and non-emergency transports), and the fleets average age is 10yrs old.

    My question is with seeing ages of being 20+ years for replacement vehicles (which I donít think any EMS service would have a fleets average age of 20+), is it worth my time to apply for a replacement of that unit?

    There is a lot more to it than just those things you quote. Of course the over-riding logic that applies here is that if you don't apply, you have no chance at all! Nothing gambled, nothing lost. All of those departments that do apply probably thank those that do not apply as it increases their chances of winning. Somebody has to win, might as well be you !

    In 2013, up to $7.2M will be specifically allocated for ambulance purchases.
