INDEPENDENCE — The Independence Rescue Squad is raising money to provide a grant match for the purchase of new ambulance.
The squad was recently awarded a partial grant from the Virginia Office of Emergency Services’ Rescue Squad Assistance Fund. According to Captain Robby Wingate, the award will allow the rescue squad to replace the oldest of their three ambulances, a 1993 model. The last ambulance purchase for the squad was made in 2007.
The grant requires a 20 percent match from the rescue squad, which totals $43,000.
