Blandinsville - Hire Fire/ Rescue Department
June 27, 2017
Hi everyone! I hope to utilize this blog to share local events and happenings in the area. I'd like to share today with you some new from the Fire Department. They are trying to raise funds for a Lucas CPR Machine (http://www.lucas-cpr.com/en/lucas_cpr/lucas_cpr). They are serving breakfast in the firehouse during the Farmers Picnic both Saturday and Sunday morning. Check out this post from Sonya Hamilton for more details:
"The Blandinsville-Hire Fire/Rescue Department is raising money for a Lucas CPR machine. This machine will help with chest compressions while doing CPR. One of our firemen, Crayton Havel (Kaley Havel) "volunteered" to wear a tutu during the parade at the Blandinsville Farmer's Picnic if it would help raise money for this machine. He did try to back out BUT thanks to some generous donations he is more the happy to wear it! Tonight was the first fitting for his tutu. We had our monthly meeting tonight and we figured out the rest of his " costume". Crayton is a great guy and is going the extra mile to help his Fire Dept. We will be having a Pancake and Sausage breakfast Saturday, July 8and Sunday, July 9, 6am to 9 am each day, free will donation and all proceeds go to the Lucas Chest Compression machine. Crayton will walk in the parade at 10am. Come on out to the Picnic, have some breakfast and enjoy the parade. If you want to make a donation, please contact anyone on the dept or watch for the donation containers around Blandinsville."
