Grant Will Help Emergency Services Provider Train Future Professional EMTs
CLAYTON — The Cary and Janet Brick Riverside Foundation, a Northern New York Community Foundation affiliate, recently provided support to the Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Service for its ongoing EMT educational program.
The $1,000 grant will help TIERS train future professional emergency medical technicians. The nonprofit organization delivers 24-hour emergency medical services to the St. Lawrence River communities in the towns of Clayton and Orleans. The grant was made, in part, to help enhance the expansion of EMT training for younger first-responders and new recruits.
