Carteret, NJ – Mayor Dan Reiman has been joined by Carteret Fire Chief Brian O’Connor to announce that the Borough has been awarded $25,000 by Investors Savings Bank towards the purchase of a new ambulance. The grant will be provided through the Investors Savings Bank Foundation, which provides funds to local non-profit organizations to improve public resources and programs.
The grant is one of many the Borough has received in recent years to bolster the town’s fleet of emergency service vehicles, according to Mayor Reiman, including a $175,000 foam fire truck received from Kinder Morgan last year.
“This donation is a testament to the value of partnerships that can be formed between a community and the businesses it hosts,” Mayor Reiman stated. “This administration has always been proactive in establishing such partnerships, and encouraging a level of community involvement that goes beyond the establishment of jobs and the growth of our commercial tax base.”
