Montgomery Twp. Receives $50k Grant 
For Emergency Services 
Montgomery Township has been awarded a $50,000 grant from Investors Foundation to support Montgomery Emergency Medical Services (MEMS), Squad 47, which is an all-volunteer service organization.  The grant was applied for by Montgomery CFO Michael Pitts in October of 2016. A ceremonial check was presented by Brian Turano of the Investors Foundation to Mayor Ed Trzaska and representatives of MEMS at the Montgomery Township offices on Tuesday, February 28th. It is anticipated that the funds, which will be received over 4 years, will be used towards a first responder vehicle for MEMS.

Mayor Trzaska commented, "One of our governing principles is to protect public health and safety services.  While Montgomery EMS is a private non-profit organization,  they provide 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 to achieving this goal.  On behalf of the residents of Montgomery, we thank Brian and his team for this recognition."

Pictured with ceremonial check for a $50,000 grant provided by Investors Foundation to Montgomery Twp. are (l to r): Montgomery Twp. CFO Michael Pitts, Investors Bank Sr. V.P. Brian Turano, Montgomery EMS V.P. Glenn Hill, Mayor Ed Trzaska, MEMS President John Connacher, and Montgomery Administrator Donato Nieman.

MEMS President John Connacher added, "As Montgomery EMS enters our 45th year of service to the community we appreciate the support via 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.   As a volunteer, resident, and taxpayer, its wonderful news that the township was able to obtain a grant to cover 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.
