Posted April 15, 2015 at 7:04 pm

Inwood Fire & Rescue recently took delivery of a 2014 ambulance built by Arrow Manufacturing of Rock Rapids. The new chassis and re-manufactured box cost about $118,000. Of that amount, $97,781 was a Lyon County Riverboat Foundation grant. Financial support from the community at Inwood Fire & Rescue fundraisers paid the remaining costs. The vehicle replaces a 1993 ambulance, which will be sold. Inwood’s rescue squad currently has 14 volunteer members.
