During the month of May, Midway Fire Rescue participated in a Teddy Bear Drive in honor of Emergency Medical Services for Children’s Day. The members of the community were encouraged to drop off new stuffed animals for our medic units. These stuffed animals were to be used to comfort children during pediatric medical transports or traumatic events.
The event was a huge success with the community really showing support for the Teddy Bear Drive. Midway Fire Rescue was able to collect just under 1,000 teddy bears from the community. This drive was so successful and we can’t thank our community enough for the continued support.
A big thank you to the Marine Corps League Detachment 873 who donated a trunk-full of stuffed animals to Midway Fire Rescue for young victims.
