Applications will be submitted using KEMSIS and must be completed by January 31, 2016.
A Substitute Item Form (KBEMS G-3) must be submitted and approved prior to the purchase of any items with grant funds. The G-3 will be available in KEMSIS prior to July 1, 2016.
Please contact KBEMSGrant@kctcs.edu regarding the Ambulance Grant Funding program. Remember the KBEMS office, along with all KCTCS offices, will observe institutional closing from December 19, 2015 through January 3, 2016. During this time no one will be available to answer any last minute questions. The deadline for online submission is set by regulation; the KEMSIS will not accept incomplete applications or those after the deadline of January 31, 2016.
Remember, that there is no longer a ‘Board Approved’ list of items. All items purchased with Ambulance Grant funds must fit into your agency Tier classification as described in 202 KAR 7:520. The KBEMS will utilize FEMA's Authorized Equipment List (AEL) in determining the validity of the item(s) requested. The FEMA AEL can be found here.
