Newburgh Rescue would like to raise $2000 to equip each member with an individual kit that has most of the basic equipment needed at calls. On Saturday, September 13th from 5 to 7 PM they will be holding a spaghetti supper to raise funds to purchase this equipment at the Town Office. The cost is $7 for adults, $5 for children ages five through twelve and free for children under the age of five. The cost is $20 for a family of four. Raffles will be available throughout the supper.
Members of the all-volunteer squad respond from their homes and must first get to the Rescue truck for equipment. Responders often bypass the location of the call to retrieve the needed equipment. If each member has their own equipment bag this will provide a quicker response time and allow members to arrive at a patient's side in a timely manner.
