Rutland FD receives grant


RUTLAND — The Rutland Volunteer Fire Department is the recipient of a $5,000 grant for the purchase of new equipment.

The grant is from Sherman Insurance in Ansonia, Ohio and their partner MutualAid eXchange (MAX).

According to a news release, David Sherman, the head of Sherman Insurance, reached out to the Rutland Volunteer Fire Department after learning about the MAX Community Grant Program.

“I’ve been the department’s insurance agent for years, and I know how hard these guys work and how committed they are to the safety of their community,” stated Sherman in the release. “This grant will help them be safer and let them know how much we appreciate their service.”

The grant money will be used to help purchase a pressure tester for their hoses and a set of bunker pants and boots.

Max is a fair, faithful and socially responsible home, auto and property/casualty insurance company that was founded on religious principles. Today it serves people of all faith backgrounds. It created the Mutual Aid Ministries Community Grant program as a way to partner with their network of independent agents who identify and want to support worthy projects in their communities.
