Elmwood Rescue relies heavily on donations, fundraising and 911 calls to fund our ambulance service since we don't get any Tax Money. We are 100% self-sufficient on those options. We use the money to help with upkeep and maintenance on our equipment and vehicles. We also provide Free EMS standbys at all E-M Knight Home Football games, yearly scholarships to high school seniors, training for our members, reimbursement for new EMTs on our service (it costs approximately $1,500 to send 1 student to EMT class).
Below is the link to sign up. Everyone that signs up before October 15th will get a T-Shirt and a Medal. Anyone who signs up after October 15th will not be guaranteed a medal. Thank you for your help in getting the word out!
The Cornhusker Country Music Theater is gradually getting a NEW LOOK!
