Fire Department Receives Gift of Emergency Jump Kits from Tribe

The members of the Watersmeet Volunteer Fire Department would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians for their donation to purchase emergency medical jump kits for the Watersmeet EMS volunteers.

The jump kits will be carried in the personal vehicles of four EMS volunteers, and one will be carried by Watersmeet police.  These kits include emergency first aid supplies, an AED and oxygen.  This equipment can increase response time by allowing EMS personnel to travel directly to an emergency and begin immediate treatment without first having to drive into town to retrieve the medical rescue vehicle.

Precious time, and possibly lives, will be saved because of this generous donation to our community.

Thank you LVD!
