USDA Rural Development announces funding of $70,000 to the Wymore Emergency Medical Service (EMS).  Leveraged funds of $121,706 from the Wymore EMS will complete the financing needed.  The funds will be used to purchase a new 2015 F-450 4x4 ambulance.

"The new ambulance will be a huge help for the four districts served:  Wymore, Blue Springs, Barneston and Liberty," said Brian Polson, Wymore Emergency Medical Service.

“Due to the frequent use of the ambulance, which is 10 years old, a second new ambulance is needed to meet the demands of the community,” said Community Programs Specialist Janice Stopak, USDA Rural Development.

 The project was funded through the USDA Rural Development Community Facility Grant program.  For more information contact Janice Stopak at 402-437-5743.
