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.
