Second Year of Grant to Support Montgomery EMSPosted on May 8, 2018
Investors Bank Award for First Responder Vehicle Purchase
Montgomery Township has received the second annual $12,500 issuance of a four year award of $50,000 from Investors Foundation to support Montgomery Emergency Medical Services (MEMS) 47, an all-volunteer service organization. A ceremonial check was presented by Syed Jafri and Dee Abedraboh of Investors Bank to Montgomery Township on Tuesday, May 1st. Representatives of Montgomery Township, including Mayor Mark Conforti and CFO Michael Pitts, who applied for the grant, were on hand to express the Township’s tremendous gratitude. The funds are being used towards a new first responder vehicle for MEMS.
Montgomery Mayor Mark Conforti commented, “A key priority of Montgomery Township municipal leadership is the protection of public health and safety. Montgomery EMS is a private non-profit organization which provides a core municipal service, so we support them in any way we can. This tremendously generous grant from The Investors Foundation will go a long way towards that goal. On behalf of the residents of Montgomery, thank you!”
MEMS President Scott DellaPeruta, was unable to attend the presentation, but added, “In our 46th year of service to the community, Montgomery EMS appreciates the support of continued donations and volunteering by our wonderful Montgomery neighbors which allow us to continue our mission. Our Township further demonstrated that support by granting us a much needed first responder vehicle. It is wonderful that the township was able to obtain a grant to offset this cost.”
The Montgomery EMS provides 9-1-1 emergency basic life support ambulance service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year within the township of Montgomery, NJ with no charge. Volunteers interested in training are always needed. To learn more, go to: www.mems47.org.
