In honor of National EMS Week we wanted to give you an inside look at one of Vashon Island aid cars. 🚑
Keeping the aid car organized, tidy and well-stocked serves several purposes:
– At a glance, firefighters know when an item needs to be resupplied
– No time wasted looking, firefighters instantly know where to grab any essential medical item
– The state of the rig reflects the pride taken in the job
Your Vashon Island Firefighters are professionals and we take pride in our work – reflected by the care we put into the equipment on a daily basis. #weprotectvashon
