CLYDE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Citizens EMS in Clyde is hosting an open house and Superhero ‘Don’t Run with Scissors’ Fun Run to help raise money for equipment, station maintenance and volunteers’ services.

As a non profit (501C3) organization, unattached to the City of Clyde, Citizens EMS said all of its funding comes from grants and donations. While donations are always appreciated, grants are highly competitive.

The emergency service said its goal with this fun run is to replace portable radios its volunteers use to be alerted about emergencies, then it plans to replace other emergency equipment if funds allow.

2020 showed us… We have an abundance of compassion and resilience to our fellow neighbors and community,” Citizens EMS released via its Facebook event page. “A superhero origin story was created.”

The fund raising event will take place at Citizens Emergency Medical Services, located at 911 South 1st Street West, Suite A on Saturday, August 20.
