Columbia Bank Foundation Grant Funds Purchase of Equipment for Tri Boro First Aid Squad

July 12, 2019


The Tri Boro First Aid Squad has received a $15,830 grant from the Columbia Bank Foundation to purchase a new Lucas Chest Compression System, specialized equipment that performs long-term, uninterrupted CPR.

“We are proud to assist the Tri Boro First Aid Squad and their commitment to saving lives,” said Thomas J. Kemly, President and CEO of Columbia Bank. “This new equipment will perform CPR, while freeing up members to concentrate on other vital lifesaving tasks.”

The Columbia Bank Foundation actively seeks to provide support in six major areas: affordable housing programs, community investment and economic development opportunities, financial literacy and educational opportunities, health and human services, food pantries, and the arts. Special consideration is always given to programs that provide a measurable community impact.
