Rusk Fire Report
By Wayne Morgan
Oct. 7, the Rusk Volunteer Pire
Department responded to a grass
fire on the Eastex Farm Road, to
two Air I assists and to a one-car
accident at Boxes Creek on FM1857
(Sardis Road); on the 10th to a car
fire at Highway 84 and Highway 69;
on the 11th to a car fire on County
Road 1205 and to a request for as-
sistance from the Alto Fire Depart-
ment with a house fire. Due to the
nature of the fire and Alto's quick
response, they were able to keep the
fire damage confined to two-rooms
of the double wide mobile home. It
was a job well done by Alto!! On the
12th we responded to a request for
help from Reklaw Fire Department
with a grass fire.
HEROES!!! That word has been
defined as ordinary people perform-
ing an extraordinary taBk. If that is
the case, and I believe it so, then all
of you readers have been or will be
Now I know that some of you will
say, I never go anywhere to be
involved in anything, that is not
necessarily the truth.
If yo\j have neñghbqrhood kids
playing around your house, you
could be called \\R9n.at any time to
be a hero. How? By having to apply
a pressure bandage or use a pres-
sure point to stop bleeding, to re-
move something blocking a person's
airway to start CPR or to simply get
How many of you have the emer-
gency numbers where you or some-
one strange to your home can find
them (without looking them up in
the phone book)? Remember the
first person at an accident scene
may only be physically able to make
the phone call, but if the call is not
made then help will not come! How
many of you have taken a CPR
course? I have heard it said "I
haven't taken one, but I sent my
children." Fantastic, but what
happens if it is your children that
need CPR? How about a sim pie first
aid class? It is entirely possible that
knowing how to apply a pressure
bandage may keep someone from
bleeding to death before help ar-
rives. Do you think that these things
can't happen to you? If so, then you
have only to listen to the news or
read the paper and see how often
they happen every day.
Now I did not say all of the above
to alarm you, rather to start you
thinking. If you find yourself in the
minus column in the above, then
take steps to fix that.
Post those phone numbers, pro-
gram them in your phone, sign up
for a first aid class, sign up for a
CPR class. Educate yourself and
your family so that when called
upon, you can respond in a positive
Please do not think that you are
too old to do this. Remember even a
very tiny bitof help may be the edge
that the emergency personnel need
to save someone's life and that
someone could be me.
