    Default 2006 Grant Questions

    We are a surburban Rescue Company. We run light duty rescue, BLS and assist EMS for ALS. We have 1 1982 Ford Ambulance for our transports that has most def seen better days. W We are looking for a grant either for PPE for our members or for a new ambulance. No one has ever put in for a grant and no one but me has the grant writeing class. I am lost as far as were to start to look for grants... any help would be greatly appericated.

    Thanks
    Twig

    Twig - if you wander over to my web site (www.firegraphics.org), my business partner in NC can hook you up with a PPE quote and free grant writing assistance from yours truly. No obligations.

    An ambulance for a Rescue Squad or EMS Organization is Priority 1 truck, but the money available for organizations such as yours is even less this year if the percentages didn't change. Last year only 2% of the available money could go to EMS/Rescue organizations, and 25% of that was the cap on vehicles. So this year if nothing changes, and I don't get any vibes that it will, only $11.7 million will be available for EMS/Rescue companies, and only $2.925 million for EMS vehicles. Which will all probably be ambulances, although EMT-B first response vehicles are the other P1 truck. At around $100K an ambulance on average, that's only 30 boxes for the whole country. Just like FDs, I always recommend taking a hard look at the PPE/equipment situations first because there's more money (i.e. better chance at success) than with a vehicle. If those are taken care of, then fire away at the vehicle.

    Good luck, and drop a line if y'all need anything.

    Twig, I got your email but Yahoo doesn't like your address or something. I got an 'undelivered' error when I replied just now.
