Preston Emergency Service is using the grant money to purchase a portable carbon monoxide oximeter. This will allow staff to monitor the volunteer fire department during fire rehab or patients during carbon dioxide poisoning.
The mission of this program is to support rural areas in AgStar’s service area by funding emergency response equipment for volunteer fire, rescue or ambulance departments. Rural volunteer emergency response departments in AgStar’s 69-county service area are eligible to apply for a grant up to $2,500 if it has not received a grant in the last two years.
“When it comes to emergency services, many rural departments are lacking up-to-date equipment and gear due to budget restraints. This not only impacts the safety of the crews, but of the communities as well,” stated John Monson, Chair of AgStar’s Fund Board of Trustees. “Offering these grants is our way of thanking and supporting the people who serve and protect us in our rural communities.”
Since its inception in 2001, the AgStar Fund has donated more than $4 million to organizations working to improve the future of rural America.
AgStar Financial Services, ACA, headquartered in Mankato, Minn., employs more than 600 full-time team members. The company is part of the national Farm Credit System and has a public mission to serve 69 counties in Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. AgStar’s industry specialization, client segments and market delivery systems result in diversification nationwide. The company has expertise in the corn, soybean, swine, dairy and bio-energy industries. AgStar has developed successful programs in loans, leases, crop insurance, consulting and rural home mortgages. As a value-added financial services cooperative, AgStar allocates patronage dividends to its 14,000 stockholders. The company is also committed to giving back to rural residents, organizations and communities through AgStar’s Fund for Rural America. Visit www.AgStar.com for more information.
