The First Responder EMT Grant –
While all 911 zoned EMS Services and 911 zoned Medical First Responders are eligible to apply for the grant, priority will be given to those services willing to quickly complete the course approval requirements and conduct the program within the contract period allowed. This Grant is only available to Services not individuals
This is a competitive grant. Applications will be accepted till close of business of deadline date. Once the Grants are awarded, GEMSA will deal only with the Service and the Director of the Service will be the person accountable as it pertains to the Grant. No individual county or zone will be eligible for more than one grant unless there are fewer requests than courses available.
The total dollar amount of each grant will vary depending on the number of students who are enrolled/graduating in the EMR/EMT class. The initial class roster must have a minimum number of 12 students (with student names and their addresses - not the business) to be eligible for this grant while the maximum number we will reimburse for is 25 students on the ending roster. You may elect to have more than 25 students in the class however, we will only reimburse for a maximum of 25 students. Each course must be approved through the course approval process as developed by the State Office of EMS and Trauma. To receive funding, we must have the SOEMS Course Approval Number on the beginning roster. Students may elect to challenge the National Registry examination; however, the examination is not required, and the grant will not reimburse expenses for challenging the exam.
