At Jefferson Monroe Fire department we are made of a wide variety of people and backgrounds. For those of you who have visited our facilities you have probably noticed the inspirational artwork in our upstairs entry and Weight room.
Both of these pieces have been commissioned by one of our own.
We want to introduce to you one our amazing first responders and talented artists.
Member since 2013 – 5 years
She is an EMT-B and works in Des Moines at Unity Point Health as a Respiratory Therapist-Neonatal/Pediatric Specialist/Adult Critical Care Specialist
Yes that’s right she lives in Des Moines and in her free times makes trips back to our district to be available to respond to calls.
We are glad to have the upgrades done on 141 and to have it back home. We drove 141 from Alexis, IL to the station only to be paged out to backup Station 1 in Iowa City for their City Carton fire. So 141 drove 2 hours to never make it home until 10:30pm that night. Even when we are “out of service,” we are always still working!
Check out your JMFD staff and others from the community joining us for CPR certification.
The image above is of the Lucas device we own that allows us to maintain proper CPR for longer durations until transport. This device frees up hands, reduces fatigue and man power requirements and helps ensure High Quality CPR is administered for a greater survival outcome.
