To the editor:
On behalf of North Memorial Ambulance, I am pleased to offer our support to the MERIT Center vehicle training expansion through the Vote Yes for Growth campaign for the MERIT Center project. North Memorial Ambulance is a provider of ambulance services across the states of Minnesota and western Wisconsin and for the city of Marshall, Redwood Falls and Minneota. We are dedicated partners with various traffic safety programs including, the MN Safe and Sober program, Towards Zero Deaths, MN Safe Communities and The MN Safety Council. We have also partnered with the Marshall Traffic Safety Coalition to continue to help educate and reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries in the Marshall Area.
As a provider of ambulance transportation services to the citizens of the Marshall community, we strongly support and look forward to the improved driver education that the MERIT Center vehicle training expansion will bring to our agency and to the drivers of southwest Minnesota.
North Memorial Ambulance is passionate about improving the health and driver safety of our community and reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries through improved training opportunities. We support the expansion of the M.E.R.I.T. center driving course and are excited about the possibilities that this project could provided to Marshall and the surrounding area.
