Often, financial support comes with a catch. If the team can manage to get by with fundraisers and donations, it's worth it to keep the school administration at bay.

The most ridiculous part of the article was when they said, "unity of the Islamic faith". It might just be me, but trying to kill all infidels doesn't seem very unifying.

Nothing more pathetic than when an overbearing, obnoxious jerk finds humility. If he wants sympathy he can find it in the dictionary between sh** and syphilis

Adams County EMS service receives grant to replace equipment

1 year, 1 month ago by Bryan Nichols

Money from Marion Gardner Jackson Trust will go toward defibrillators

The Adams County Ambulance and Emergency Medical Services will soon see new equipment thanks to a grant.

The Adams County Ambulance & EMS was awarded a $60,000 grant from the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust last week.

The money from the grant will be used to replace two sixteen year-old cardiac monitor/defibrillators with two new units. According to a release, the two new Physio-Control Lifepak 15 models will have expanded capabilities to meet current patient care requirements including sending EKG data to the Emergency Department and Cardiac Cath Lab. That would provide receiving physicians with a preview of the incoming patient’s condition.

EMS Chief Paul Davis said the Ambulance Service regularly uses grants to purchase much needed patient care and training equipment "to ensure we t support such expenditures."

He said the Adams County Ambulance & EMS has also received funds from other federal, state and local grant programs over past two or three years. In addition to the Marion Gardner Jackson Charitable Trust, other grant benefactors include ADM Community Cares, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Illinois Department of Public Health EMS Assistance grant, Enbridge, Adams Rural Electric Cooperative-Penny Power grant, and FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighter’s Grant.

Davis said Paramedic Kyle Dixon has been largely responsible for writing the grants and obtaining the extra funding.
