Independent Insurance Agents of South Dakota delivered a $5,000 Trusted Choice grant check to the volunteers of South Shore Ambulance Service on Tuesday evening, August 10th. The grant money will go towards the purchase of a power cot to reduce the chances of injury to volunteers while lifting and transporting patients.
IIASD awarded two EMS grants this year with the other grant going to Burke Ambulance Service. Nominations must be submitted through a local Trusted Choice Independent Insurance agent.
LaVonne Seehafer was the nominating agent for South Shore Ambulance Service. This grant is funded by all independent insurance agents in South Dakota through their membership and participation in our programs. IIASD recognizes the great value EMS volunteers provide to protect lives and the time and dedication it takes to train and care for those emergency situations. We thank South Shore Ambulance volunteers for their service.
