PRINCETON — The Heaton-Hudson Memorial Scholarship recently made a donation to help offset the cost of the grain bin rescue awareness training in Princeton.
Firefighters from the Princeton, Bureau, Arlington, Hennepin and LaMoille fire departments were trained in extricating patients from various agriculture-related emergencies during this hands-on training.
The Heaton-Hudson Memorial Scholarship was established in the memory of Richard Heaton and Mark Hudson to help provide educational opportunities for individuals in Bureau County interested in becoming a firefighter, paramedic or EMT. The scholarship also provides money for additional training opportunities such as the grain bin training.
Anyone interested in applying for a scholarship may contact Chief Chuck Woolley at the Princeton Fire Department at 815-875-1861.
