The article focuses on the Firefighter program which mirrors the general management of the year 2003 under the Office of Domestic Preparedness (ODP). All program areas and activities available in 2003 would be eligible for funding again in the year 2004. Emergency Medical Services activities will not be an independent program area this year, they will be incorporated under the operations and Firefighter Safety Program. Departments that have previously won fire grants for the purchase of vehicles will not be eligible for grants for vehicles this year. To help fire departments improve their applications, the ODP opened a new Web site in February supporting the 2004 grant program.
