Grant Received for Critical Transport Equipment

In May of this year, SCIA was awarded a grant from The Cayuga Community Fund to support the purchase of a new stair chair, an essential piece of equipment used by ambulance crews to transport patients in medical emergencies up and down stairs and through tight spaces.

Patient handling on stairs and in narrow spaces is one of the most difficult transport situations EMS providers face. This award will enable SCIA to purchase a modern stair chair to more safely and quickly evacuate critically ill patients from their homes and protect the crew from potential injury.

The Cayuga Community Fund is a geographically-specific fund administered by the Central New York Community Foundation. Created in 2008, the Cayuga Community Fund serves as a source of permanent charitable dollars available to not-for-profit organizations serving Cayuga County.
