MaxYield Cooperative presented the Algona Fire Department with a contribution of $2500 in matching funds from the CHS Seeds for Stewardship program. The funds match a contribution made earlier this year by MaxYield. The funds will be used to upgrade the department’s air packs.

Each new air pack costs $5000 and the purchase of new packs will increase firefighter’s safety and protection, and increase the number of quality packs for the department.

MaxYield Energy team leader and member of the Algona Fire Department Chad Besch presented the checks to Tony Rahm, assistant fire chief, Joe Degen, president, Roger Simpson, secretary and Mitch Ulrick.
