WRS Members Attend Grant Class

We want to thank Giles Sartin, Will Kennedy, and Nathan Shockley for attending a grant writing class hosted at the Southwest Virginia EMS Council last night (6-18-19). WRS is always on the lookout for grant opportunities that can help our agency to provide the high level of care that our community has come to expect. The class focused on writing techniques and how to prepare, write, and submit grant applications and helped to explain the Virginia Rescue Squad Assistance Fund (RSAF) grant which is a large grant source to EMS agencies in Virginia. We are currently awaiting the release of the June 2019 RSAF grant award list which is due to be published on July 1st. Our Grant Team applied for a LUCAS 3 CPR Device, this device provides continuous chest compressions and has been shown to improve patient outcomes in Cardiac Arrest events. We also applied for (3) iPads for patient care report documentation to replace our currently aging Toughbook Computers. Do you have any suggestions for grant opportunities? If so send us the details!
