California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS): 2017 Emergency Medical Services GME Grant
Deadline: January 30, 2016
Amount: Varies. Applicants asked to provide reasonable costs for the requested services.
Match: None required
Eligibility: Cities, counties, fire protection districts
The city/county/fire protection district will serve as the lead agency for a regional extrication equipment distribution grant for their county using this OTS Grants Made Easy (GME) application. The extrication equipment is used by first responders to safely extricate victims trapped in traffic collisions. “Best practice” strategies will be used to reduce the response time for the arrival of appropriate extrication equipment to traffic collision scenes and the time to extricate the victims of traffic collision, thus increasing survivability. The grant will provide funding for new equipment and training for fire departments without extrication equipment or those that have existing equipment that has reached the end of its usable lifespan and is in need of replacement.
