Safety Grant Awarded For Ambulance Cot

Ohio BWC Administrator, Steve Buehrer, was on hand today at the City Fire Department to issue a Safety Grant check of $29,829.08 to Mayor Patrick McGowan.  The check is for the purchase of a Stryker Power ambulance cot that raises and lowers the patient with the touch of a button which has proven to reduce spinal loading, resulting in reduced injuries, lost workdays, and workers’ compensation.  The Ohio BWC matches every employer dollar with three dollars on the purchase of equipment to substantially reduce or eliminate injuries and illnesses.
