Custer VFD

Grant - December 7, 2021

Congratulations to the Custer Volunteer Fire Department on receiving the first West River combined grant from the Independent Insurance Agents of South Dakota in partnership with the new South Dakota Salutes Special Needs Fund.

Over 40 departments across South Dakota applied for the grants; Custer was selected based on their compelling request for new SCBAs to replace aging units they have been using.

From their application:

"These breathing apparatuses, also known as an air packs, are devices worn to provide breathable air in an atmosphere that is immediately dangerous to life or health. It is one of the most important pieces of equipment any fire department has!"
