Fire and ambulance officials in Morton County are about to become better equipped for emergencies.
The Morton County Emergency Management office says the private security company 10-Code will donate eight ballistic vests to local fire and ambulance crews – equipment that isn’t typically in their budgets.
The donation is valued around $5,600. Morton County officials say the vests are manufactured by Bismarck-based Midwest Armour.
Mandan Fire and Metro Ambulance will receive the vests at a presentation event this Friday, March 23rd, at 10:00 am at Fire Station #1 in Mandan.
