We are pleased to announce that you may now obtain your county’s annual grant from the state for the improvement and expansion of your county’s prehospital emergency medical services (EMS). You can see the amount for your county this year by using the following link.
The funds derive from 401.113 (1), Florida Statutes, which requires counties to use the funds solely to improve and expand prehospital EMS and, consequently, does not allow costs for replacement, ongoing expenses, and recurring dues or payments of any kind without written consent from the state EMS program.
We are again using the 2002 edition grant booklet and forms. If you need a copy, you may access them online in PDF listed below, or request from a state grant person the forms in Microsoft Word.
To obtain its funds, the county must complete appropriately and send to the state the signed original and one copy of the (1) two-page application form DH Form 1684, (2) Request for Grant Fund Distribution page DH Form 1767P, and (3) resolution described in Item #4 of the application form. Your budget must total to the amount cited for your county in the above link.
