Norton Fire Department Gets Big Donation Boost

Posted: Updated:

By: Liz Tufts


Firefighters in Norton have a new tool to help them save lives. A big donation allowed them to buy a high tech stretcher, which makes it easier to get a patient in and out of ambulances.

It cost about 15-thousand dollars. A woman whose husband recently passed away and used the ambulance service donated the money in his honor.

It's the largest donation the fire department has ever received. The woman wants to remain anonymous.

The man's nickname is etched on the side of the stretcher in his memory. The department is now looking into buying a second stretcher.
