STANTON, Neb. – First responders in Stanton met Tuesday night to discuss emergency personnel and equipment…and how to get more of both.

The Stanton Volunteer Fire Department held its monthly meeting, at which conversations were held about the department’s need for additional EMTs.

County and city officials verbally agreed last week to schedule a meeting with Stanton Fire and Rescue Board members to discuss the issue, though no official date was released for the meeting at that time.

No action was taken at Tuesday's meeting, though discussion was held about applying for grant funding to aid in adding equipment and emergency personnel.
