DPVA has received a refurbished automated power stretcher made possible by funds raised through DPVA's Family Fun Festival last summer. The powered stretcher enhances EMS provider's safety by reducing back strains due to lifting or lowering patients. It will also provide greater safety to the patients they are moving. DPVA now has a powered stretcher on both first-out ambulances. We appreciate the community support that has enabled us to upgrade to a higher quality stretcher that will benefit both our providers and the patients they are serving.
Paramedic Rick Stone suffered a cardiac arrest the middle of January at his home. His wife started CPR, and with the help of first responders from Fire District #4, the prompt actions saved his life. He is now recovering after triple by-pass surgery. Rick has been a medic with DPVA for over 30 years. We all wish him well during his arduous journey towards full rehabilitation.
Deer Park Volunteer Ambulance would like to thank all who contributed to the success of the Family Fun Festival and Child Safety Fair. We appreciated the support of our regional hospitals, clinics, health organizations and service providers that helped provide families the opportunity to learn about child safety, health and wellness. Carnival type games, blow-up activities, and demonstrations were enjoyed by children and their families. We appreciated the food vendors and craft vendors who participated. DPVA would like to expressly thank the sponsors and the businesses that donated toward the fundraising event. The festival was a resounding success, considering it was an inaugural event. Next year it is planned that the Safety Fair and Festival will join the Settler's Days celebration at Mix Park in July.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORT DEER PARK VOLUNTEER AMBULANCE!
