HAWAII — A $35,000 grant from the HMSA Foundation is enabling the Emergency Medical Service Bureau of the Hawaii Fire Department expand its ability to help the people they serve on Hawaii Island. Funds will be used for community outreach, education and emergency response and to subsidize the cost of a vehicle.
The Hawaii Fire Department is one of six local health programs and community organizations that received support from the HMSA Foundation in the second quarter of 2013 through $270,000 in grants.
Also receiving a $100,000 grant was the American Cancer Society for its Hope Lodge Hawaii that gives neighbor island cancer patients and their caregivers free temporary housing when they travel to Honolulu for treatment.
