No Caption Epworth Fire teaches CPR and first aid

Epworth Fire CPR instructors went to Trappist Caskets to teach employees CPR and first aid. During the class the employees learned the importance of activating the emergency response system, how to do chest compressions, use an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and basic first Aid. Trained citizens in the community that can start life saving measures until EMS can arrive on scene increase the chance of survival in the event of a cardiac arrest.

DRA AWARDS $2,500 GRANT FOR EMS COMPUTER EQUIPMENT

Chief Thomas Berger, April 23

The Epworth Community Volunteer Firemen were awarded a 2020 Dubuque Racing Association Grant that allowed for the purchase of a new mobile computer terminal device for emergency calls.

This ensures privacy of patient information and reduces our radio traffic. It also allows information to be transferred to our patient care reports and allows the volunteers to start on paperwork while returning from the hospital.

The DRA provided a $2,500.00 ... (Full Story & Photos)
