Kassie Anderson and Trish McCartney spearheaded an initiative to get updated pediatric trauma equipment to townships in Ottawa County that needed it. In January of this year Anderson and McCartney headed to the North Central EMS station in Milan to talk with them about helping obtain the equipment.
On Wednesday, Feb. 26 the equipment was donated to the area EMS units in Ottawa County by the Port Clinton Kiwanis Club through the Ohio Kiwanis Foundation at the Kiwanis weekly meeting.
The emergency personnel that received the equipment, a toddler sized backboard and a car seat, gave the Kiwanians a report on how the equipment will be used in the field.
