Representatives of the Anderson County Emergency Rescue Squad will be guest speakers when the Anderson County Democratic Women’s Club meets at 6 p.m. Monday, January 23, at Shoney’s Restaurant, 204 South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.
Chief Terry Allen and Paula Daniel from the Rescue Squad will speak about the nonprofit, volunteer-run emergency response organization that serves Anderson County, a press release said. The Rescue Squad responds to a wide variety of emergency situations, including missing children, traffic accidents, water rescues, and high school training events.
The Rescue Squad is fund raising for one of its newest members, Bocephus. “Bo” is a bloodhound puppy that will go to search and rescue school when the squad has the training funds, the press release said. Club members are invited to contribute to the puppy’s training during the meeting.
The Democratic Women’s Club will also hear about the Tennessee Department of Transportation Yellow DOT program from Ken and Donna Wheeler. The Yellow DOT program is designed to make an individual’s medical information readily available to first responders in case of an emergency on Tennessee roads.
