        Extrication turnout gear, rescue tools and communications. Anything that can be considered "basic need" on most BLS units or training from First Responder level to EMT-B or EMT-B to EMT-I levels.

          So an agency that does not do fire suppresion, such as a volunteer rescue squad or volunteer ambulance core is eligible for AFG? If so, how many awards have been given to agencies like that?

            Yes, volunteer rescue squads and ambulances are eligible under the nonaffiliated EMS section of the AFG if they meet the following conditions in the PG.

            A “nonaffiliated EMS organization” is defined as a public or private nonprofit emergency medical services organization that provides direct emergency medical services, including medical transport, to a specific geographic area on a first-due basis but is not affiliated with a hospital and does not serve a geographic area where emergency medical services are adequately provided by a fire department.

            In making the determination regarding “adequately provided,” DHS will conclude that any nonaffiliated EMS organizations would be eligible if they are “adequately providing” direct emergency medical services at the time of application and are in good standing with the community, i.e., licensed and/or chartered to provide EMS services to the community. Rescue squads that provide direct emergency medical services, including medical transport, to the community they serve are included in this category of eligibility.
