The Fairview Fire District is pleased to announce the receipt of grant funding in the amount of $1250 from the Cardiovascular Fund of Dutchess County of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley.
Funds were used to purchase patient lifting devices otherwise known as Binder Lifts. Oftentimes, Fairview Firefighters and EMT’s are requested to assist individuals who have fallen and are unable to get up. These devices will make assisting these individuals and responders safer by preventing injuries to the individual, as well as our responders.
The Fairview Fire District would like to thank the Cardiovascular Fund of Dutchess County for their support of first responders and the public they serve.
