Porter Township Emergency Rescue updated the cot and loading system in one of their emergency vehicles last week, ensuring a speedier and more reliable response to the scenes of accidents and emergencies.
The new cots are beneficial in a few ways, from the reduction of the tax dollars spent, to a smoother response and a beneficial sale to Collins Career Center.
Supervisor Franki Mays has been with Porter Rescue for over 20 years and played a major role in securing the finances for the new technology.
Mays said the process has been ongoing since last October and arose when the Bureau of Worker’s Compensation (BWC) brought up a grant that would pay for the majority of the update.
