This Sunday, February 17th the Lennox Area Ambulance invites residents of the area to attend their annual fundraiser. The event is scheduled to be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Lennox Ebenezer Presbyterian Church, at 305 West First Ave., Lennox.
Those in attendance will be able to meet the ambulance crew and share a meal; on the menu will be chicken noodle soup, broccoli cheese soup, chili, hot ham and cheese sandwiches, caramel or cinnamon rolls. A free will donation will be accepted.
The funds will be used toward the purchase of a second Stryker Auto Load device, continued training for the squad and towards the purchase of new computers and software for patient report writing.
Last year, the Lennox Ambulance was able to purchase their first auto loader. This piece of equipment lifts and lowers the cot in and out of the ambulance, reducing spinal loads and the risk of cumulative trauma injuries for EMS (Emergency Medical Services) workers. It improves operator and patient safety by supporting the cot throughout the loading and unloading process.
Director of Ambulance Alan Perry is very thankful for the community’s support.
“Thank you in advance for any support you can provide. Gifts of any amount are welcome,” Perry said.
The Lennox Area Ambulance serves the community of Lennox, as well as Worthing, part of the City of Chancellor, parts of nine townships and seven miles of interstate. All-in-all it’s about 189 square miles that the squad covers. Their operating budget is funded by the City of Lennox. Funds are limited though, and equipment upgrades and training are paid for through donations.
