AVFD benefits from "Miss Flame" funds

The Alliance Volunteer Fire Department has begun their initial training on the Masimo Rad-57 Pulse CO-Oximeter which was purchased with funds generated from the 2013 Miss Flame Pageant.

The Rad-57 Handheld Pulse CO-Oximeter is a non-invasive, arterial oxygen saturation and pulse rate monitor. The monitor enables emergency personnel to measure the level of arterial oxygen saturation in the blood and measure levels of carbon monoxide concentration in arterial blood.

"We would like to thank the community for supporting the Alliance Volunteer Fire Department. In the past, we have not had the ability to measure the carbon monoxide concentration in our patients or firefighters that were engaged in firefighting operations. This new equipment will help us serve our neighbors and protect our firefighters better" said Fire Chief Troy Shoemaker.
