Volunteer fire department receives $2,500 grant from Centra

The Brown County Volunteer Fire Department is set to receive over $2,000 in grant funding from Centra Credit Union.

The $2,500 grant will be used to further the department’s mission of responding to vehicle crashes, fires and more in its coverage area. The volunteer fire department responds to calls in the Town of Nashville and all of Washington Township including two-thirds of the Brown County State Park and a portion of Yellowwood State Forest.

BCVFD was nominated by Centra Team Members who “feel passionate about the work [BCVFD] does in the community,” a press release states.

“Centra Team Members are really involved in our communities and they love being able to support the causes they care about through this program,” said Jenni Carr, Centra Community Involvement Officer.

“Nonprofit organizations are valuable assets to our communities and we’re excited to help them achieve their missions.”

A total of 39 organizations have been awarded grants through this program this year.

“The valuable work the Brown County Volunteer Fire Department does for Brown County helps it stay safe and grow, ensuring there’s a place for Centra as well,” Centra President and CEO Rick Silvers said.

“We’re honored to support the Brown County Volunteer Fire Department and their mission.”
