South Euclid Fire Department - Senior Citizen Residential Lock Box Program

In November of 2013 we received Ohio Grant funding and funding from the city of South Euclid to purchase two state of the art patient transport devices called the Stryker Power-Load cot system by Stryker. This new loading system has become the norm in our geographical area and will allow for the safer transferring of the patient with the added benefit of reducing or eliminating lifting injuries of our personnel, where nationally 40% of firefighter injuries are back and lifting related.
