Al Hermanson, Story County Community Foundation advisory board member, received thanks from the Gilbert-Franklin Township Fire & Rescue Agency personnel Jake Edwards, Mike Monesrud and David Zeisness. A SCCF community grant of $5,998 provided personal protective equipment for firefighters. “We were able to replace two full sets of bunker gear and get our members in gear that is current to National Fire Protection Agency’s guidelines,” said Edwards. SCCF awards community grants of up to $6,000 each year. Contributed photo
