RUSHVILLE — Farm Credit Mid-America, an agricultural lending cooperative serving farmers, rural residents and agribusinesses throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, contributed $500 to the Rushville City Fire Department. The funds were used to send personnel to swift water rescue training school in South Bend, IN from May 18-23. The training prepared participants to respond to swift water rescue situations in a safer manner for both rescuers and victims.
“Supporting our communities is one of our highest priorities at Farm Credit,” said Gary Coleman, regional vice president for Farm Credit. “The Rushville City Fire Department is an essential part of our community, and we admire the work they do to keep us safe. We’re proud to be able to support their training efforts so they can continue to react swiftly and safely in emergency situations.”
