CHS Agri Service Center, CHS Stewardship partner to award local safety grants

Fire departments near Holdrege, Neb., now have better access to safety equipment and training, thanks to a partnership between CHS Agri Service Center and CHS Stewardship.
 
After receiving requests from a few local fire departments, a group of CHS Agri Service Center employees led by general manager Pat Peterson came up with an idea to help fire departments and communities where there are CHS Agri Service Center facilities.
 
"After a few of the smaller departments sent us funding requests for equipment, we realized that more fire departments probably needed help, and we could be proactive by reaching out to all of the communities we serve,” said Dana Killough, CHS Agri Service Center public relations coordinator.
 
A $12,000 Ag Safety grant from CHS Stewardship, along with another $6,000 from CHS Agri Service Center, allowed 12 departments to each receive $1,500 through a re-granting program.
 
“Once we knew how much money we had, we sent out a letter asking the departments to apply and tell us how they would use a $1,500 grant,” says Killough. “All 12 of the departments we helped are volunteer fire departments, and the funds helped support projects they might not otherwise have the money for.” 

Funds went towards a multitude of equipment and training, including safety harnesses, rescue tubes, confined space training and updating fire hoses just to name a few. Many departments plan on furthering the reach of the equipment.
 
“Through mutual aid agreements, many of the departments who received funds are planning on making their equipment available and opening their trainings up to other departments,” said Killough.  “Stewardship is such a big deal of CHS, it’s great once you start seeing the results and that we can make a difference.”
