Last week, the Woman's Club of Country Arch Care Center announced a fund raising Hot Dog Stand day to benefit the Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad. We would like to thank the Woman's Club, along with all who attended the fund raiser. A total of $566.00 was raised and donated to the Rescue Squad!
Members Bryan Richards & Alison Ambrose attended the event and accepted the donation on behalf of CFARS.
Since Monday of this week, CFARS has had a presence at the 2015 Immaculate Conception Parish Festival. Wednesday night, when the festival opened, crews where on hand to handle simple assistance to true medical emergencies. Based out of our Incident Support Unit on the Northwest corner of the school, our members had on hand ambulances, our ASAP Off-Road all terrain ambulance, a rescue truck during fireworks on Wednesday and Sunday evenings, and many volunteers giving of their time.
In all, a total of 56 members provided 275 man hours of support to the festival over the 5 days. 21 Patients where assisted, with just 2 needing transport to the hospital from the grounds.
Thank you to all our members who took their time to volunteer at the festival, as well as to the community members who stopped by to say hello.
The Clinton First Aid & Rescue Squad is always looking for volunteers. A new EMT Class will be starting in September. For more information on volunteer opportunities, please visit http://www.clintonems.com/membership-info.html
Round Valley Reservoir kept our water rescue team busy today. Earlier in the day a report of a boater in distress, taking on water found two canoeists whose canoe was partially submerged and they were treading water for about an hour. Both were rescued and brought to shore, being treated by our BLS crew.
The second call was for an inflatable boat in distress by the campers launch. After an hour long search of the water, this call was deemed unfounded and crews became available.
We would like to remind all boaters to have and/or wear appropriate life vests or have approved flotation devices whenever you are out on the water.
