Hidden Valley EMS was the recent "2014 Giving Back to EMS" recipient of a refurbished fully stocked First Response Vehicle.
The award is sponsored by Everest Emergency Vehicles and the Minnesota Ambulance Association.
Jerry Foster with Hidden Valley EMS told the Winona County Board Tuesday that volunteers responded to 37 calls last year at all times of day and night.
Foster says their old ambulance was not in the best shape and the group is very excited about the new one.
Hidden Valley EMS will also get some other equipment items being donated by many other organizations from throughout the State. Hidden Valley was chosen from 15 applications which required them to write an essay as well as provide other information on their service.
Hidden Valley EMS is located near Winona in a manufactured home community and serves over 250 homes with over 1000 residents.
