On October 26th, the Southern Stone County Fire Protection District received a stair chair donated through the cooperative efforts of the Elks Lodge #2505 of Kimberling City, Our Lady of the Cove Catholic Church Knights of Columbus, and Richard and Sara Coppa. The stair chair, manufactured by the Ferno Company, assists responders with moving patients in tight areas, as well as glides patients down stairs without carrying or lifting. The chair and track system carry the weight, reducing fatigue and the risk of injury to the responder.
Southern Stone County Fire is very thankful for this generous donation and appreciate the members of our community and its organizations who stepped up to make this donation possible! Neighbors helping neighbors!
