A.J. Heightman, MPA, EMT-P | From the The Path to Grant Success Issue


This supplement offers important information and tips to help you obtain grant funds available to your organization from federal, state and local sources. Masimo, an innovator in the field of non-invasive patient monitoring technologies, is committed to improving patient outcomes, encouraging provider and patient safety, and reducing the cost of care by bringing advanced technologies to new sites and applications.

Masimo realized that in order for EMS and fire agencies to advance in the use of highly specialized equipment—such as patient monitors, ventilators, SCBAs, and mass casualty and WMD equipment, shelters and supplies—they needed assistance in obtaining grant funds to augment their already straineEditor'sd budgets. So they first established specialized Web sites, FireGrantsHelp.com and EMSGrantsHelp.com , to help you navigate through the maze of grant requirements and preparations. Now they’re sponsoring this educational supplement to help you prepare and submit successful grant applications.

Brandon Johnson, senior grant consultant with FireGrantsHelp.com and EMSGrantsHelp.com , is one of us: a field provider, specialty team leader and educator. He knows firsthand how crucial it is to be able to tap into the federal, state and local grant dollars dedicated to our missions and available for the asking. He is passionate about helping you get the grant funds you deserve and has dedicated countless hours to obtaining the latest information, and to making it available to you on the Web sites and in this special supplement.

While I was the executive director of the Eastern PA EMS Council, I wrote many grant applications, obtaining more than $11 million to develop the EMS system. The information presented in this supplement addresses many of the lessons I had to learn the hard way, through trial and error, in order to submit successful grant applications. Read this guide carefully, and go get the funds dedicated to your mission.
