We at the Iowa Veterans Home want to say “thank you” to all the first responder agencies in Marshalltown and Marshall County, as well as the Iowa State Patrol. We are a large facility caring for 530 residents with a staff numbering over 900. We often call on our first responders for assistance, and they are true professionals. They also have been instrumental in helping us improve our emergency preparedness. We appreciate all the community support that helps us accomplish our mission and contributes to the quality of life for our residents.
