Antero Resources is giving back to the Salem community by helping the Volunteer Fire Department.

Antero handed over the keys to a 2010 Chevy Silverado today.

Chief Rick Todd said the truck will be equipped with EMS gear including radios, first aid kits and outdoor rescue equipment.

"We're having to wait anywhere from 25 to 30 minutes on an ambulance on occasion, a lot of time the ambulances come from Doddridge County now and we haven't been able to carry the proper equipment on the trucks we have because we didn't have anything specially to run medical calls."

Todd says the truck is worth $19,000.

Antero sold it to the fire department for $1.
