Middlesex (NY) Ambulance Receives Funding for Equipment

Federal funding will help the Middlesex Valley Volunteer Ambulance buy new heart monitors and defibrillators.

U.S. Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced the $40,945 allocation from the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program last week.

Gillibrand called the funding a critical investment in the community.

“Updating crucial and much-needed medical equipment helps ensure the safety of countless residents in the community,” she said in a press release. “The Middlesex Valley Volunteer Ambulance will get up-to-date defibrillators to help those who have suffered a heart attack and save more lives.”
