 Re:      Funding for Trauma Courses

 Date:  October 12, 2020

The Georgia EMS Association has partnered with the Georgia Trauma Commission to facilitate the distribution of funds earmarked for the coordination and delivery of approved Trauma Courses for Emergency Services personnel.

The purpose of this  to provide lead instructors with the information necessary to seek approval through GEMSA for the use of these funds.

Currently, additional funds are approved to cover course expenses for 15 Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support, International Trauma Life Support, Geriatric Education for EMS and Emergency Pediatric Care programs at a maximum of $5,850.00 per course (as designated by the GEMSA Trauma Course Grant Agreement. ALL applicants awarded grants must abide by rules in the Trauma Course Grant Agreement and sign, initial and return the completed document to GEMSA within 2 weeks of Grant being awarded).

These funds are provided to ensure participants can attend these programs at no charge.  Our goal is to reach ‘statewide’ and make this training accessible to as many providers as possible.  The class must be an ‘open’ registration course and not limited to a specific set group.  This is a competitive Grant.
