Missouri State Fair Fire Department Request

It’s getting to be that time of the year again. Keeping true to the motto of the Missouri State Fair Fire Department,  “Mutual Aid at its Best,” we are once again requesting donations of EMS supplies for the 2018 operations. As some of you know this winter we experienced a significant loss of supplies when a water pipe burst and flooded our supply closet.

Due to the nature of our operation being eleven days a year, the flooding was not found until several days after the pipe burst. The water damage resulted in a catastrophic loss of supplies. Supplies lost include all of our airway supplies, all of our bandaging equipment for bleeding control, Emergency OB kits, and other miscellaneous supplies. Being a volunteer organization we rely on donated supplies to provide a quality of care that the patrons of the fair have come to expect with an EMS response or in first aid for treatment.

Listed below are the supplies that we lost and need to replace for our 2018 operation.
