Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad donates ambulance to WV county

News
A Montgomery County Fire Department is stepping up to help their fellow firefighters in West Virginia that were affected by the floods.
 
Many of Clay County’s emergency vehicles were damaged in the flood. The Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad decided to donate one of theirs. 
 
While this ambulance was still running, there were plans to replace it. The Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad was happy to give it to a community in need. 
 
“Over their 75 years of history of Wheaton, they’ve had ups and downs. During their down periods, people have come forward and helped them out so they’re just able to pay it forward,” said Pete Piringer of Montgomery County Fire. 
 
Officials say the Wheaton Volunteer Rescue Squad will buy a new ambulance in the next few months.
