MONROE - The Green County EMS Capital Campaign has received $1,150,000 in donations and pledges to date. Current donations represent 75 percent of the $1.5 million the non-profit organization needs to raise for the construction of a new EMS station.

"Individuals and businesses in the Monroe area have been very supportive of the project and very generous in committing funds to make it a reality," said Dave Deininger, who with his wife Mary co-chairs the fundraising effort. "We still have $350,000 to go, and we are hoping to reach 100 percent of our goal by October of this year so that plans for the new facility can move forward."

Volunteers of Green County EMS have provided emergency medical services and transports to area hospitals for the residents of southern Green County since 1974, and are now responding to more than 1,500 calls a year. The present facility has space to house only two of four service vehicles. Additional crew quarters and classroom training space are also needed.

The lot for the new station is across the street from the current facility on 12th Street. The new station will meet the group's current and projected space needs for the next 25 years, said Dan Nufer, Green County EMS Chief.
