EMS receive new stretchers

Since April the Yorktown EMS hoped to raise enough money to purchase two new INSX stretchers from Ferno. The hoping is over as they enjoy the latest design able to carry patients up to 750 pounds and to load and unload without any lifting.

The new stretchers were delivered on Oct. 2. The EMS crew were trained on Oct. 5, the day before National Night Out.

Judge Bill Robinson said, “From April to October we collected enough in donations to pay for two stretchers. Some donations were large and some were small, but all greatly appreciated. We have been using the stretchers since then.”

This state of the art stretcher is unlike anything they ever had and well worth the cost.

Robinson said, “It will save the technicians back. We can raise the stretcher high enough to slide someone out from an 18 wheeler without taking them out.”

Yorktown EMS will have their regular scheduled meeting at 7 p.m. on Oct. 27.
