EMS Gets New Equipment

Red Cross volunteer Sandy Witter helped raise money for new medical equipment for the EMS team. Thank you Sandy!

Our Emergency Medical Services (EMS) volunteer team has some new equipment thanks to Sandy Witter and her employer, Hollstadt & Associates, Inc. Witter, who serves as an EMS volunteer for the American Red Cross, put in numerous hours on the EMS team during Hollstadt’s “Big Give” charity program. The result was a generous financial donation that the EMS team used to purchase new medical equipment, including a backboard with straps and two pulse oximeters. The equipment will help save lives during emergencies at events both large and small across our Red Cross region. You can learn more about being a Red Cross volunteer & our EMS team on redcrossmn.org.
