Emergency services receive financial support

Wednesday, November 26, 2003

Clay County Emergency Management and Lyford Volunteer Fire Department were recipients of funds from the sale of special license plates.

Gov. Joe Kernan announced the county Emergency Management office and the Lyford Fire Department in Parke County benefited from the license plate sale through the Emergency Management, Fire and Building Services and Public Safety Foundation.

Clay County Emergency Management received $2,800 for a defibrillator and the Lyford Fire Department received $3,876.84 for rescue equipment.

Kernan said more than $88,000 was distributed to 19 agencies.

The Indiana General Assembly created the foundation in 1999. The special plates went on sale in January 2000. For each plate sold, $25 goes to the foundation and $15 to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
