Supplement, The Path to Grant Success
  • Editor's Foreword

    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.

  • A Method to the Madness

    For a first-time grant writer, the grant application process can be downright frustrating. Departments that have chosen not to pursue grant funding have often said frustration is the reason why they don’t apply. To simplify the process and take the frustration out of it, all you need are five simple steps. Before we reveal what those steps are, let’s get started with a brief discussion of the basics.

  • The Ultimate Grant Resource

    Happy new year from the staff of FireGrantsHelp.com! 2008 ushers in yet another year of grant opportunities—and renewed hope for grant success. Whether your fire department or EMS agency was tremendously successful or a little disappointed in 2007, it’s time once again to reinvigorate, or maybe even resuscitate, your department’s grant program. 

  • Federal Funding

    Since 2001, the federal government has allocated billions of grant dollars annually for the purposes of reinforcing critical infrastructure and enhancing the safety and capabilities of emergency response agencies nationwide. Although hundreds of smaller state and corporate grant opportunities are also available each year, by far the largest pool of grant funds can be found within the Federal Fire Act grant programs, administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

  • Sample Narrative

    Noninvasive CO-Oximeter Project Description

  • Backyard Bucks

    Although the majority of fire and EMS grant opportunities are offered by the federal and state governments, numerous smaller corporate grants are available—and often go unnoticed. These grants won’t provide the type of funding required for big-ticket items, such as new apparatus or additional staff, but for smaller projects or bridging a budgetary gap, they may well do the trick.

  • Is It on the List?

    A fair amount of confusion shrouds the AEL and the SEL—what these two lists are and what their combined purpose is. First, neither of these equipment lists are composed of commercially available products. Instead, they’re similar lists of generic product types, so you won’t find a specific product on them, such as the Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter. What you’ll find is entry number 09ME-03-BCNI, a Non-Invasive Blood Chemistry Monitor. Beyond that, what you find will depend on which list you’re reviewing. 

  • What Not to Do

    I recently spent an entire afternoon assembling a home gym and treadmill for my wife. I must admit that after opening the two enormous boxes containing what seemed like 5 million pieces, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with the task that lay ahead. As I’m certain any man would, I had confidently told my wife, “No biggie, dear. I’ll have this thing up and running in no time.” This was, of course, the first of many miscalculations I made that day.

  • Tell & Sell Your Story

    Competing for grant dollars in the current homeland security climate is both an opportunity and a challenge. As pointed out earlier, to win funding in this highly competitive environment, grant proposals must be well planned, compliant and persuasive. A review of successful grant applications often finds that the narrative is the component that makes the application. Often overlooked, the importance of writing a complete and appealing narrative cannot be emphasized enough.
