NEW TOWN – The New Town Ambulance Service received a significant boost in its fundraising for a new ambulance Thursday with a $25,000 donation from Slawson Exploration.
Paramedic Amanda Bibb, ambulance service manager, said the capital drive continues to seek to raise an additional $150,000 toward a nearly $245,000 capital drive for an ambulance and cot system purchase.
The ambulance service previously received $5,000 from Marathon Oil and a $15,000 matching grant from QEP Resources. Workforce Safety & Insurance provided a $10,000 grant toward a cot, or stretcher, system to equip the ambulance. The ambulance service also has a replacement fund from which it is able to draw funding, and Mountrail County is providing additional assistance.
