P.M. UPDATE: EMS hosting "Safety Day" on Saturday

Muskogee County EMS will be hosting “Safety Day” as part of “National EMS Week” from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Muskogee Civic Center. This will be held in cooperation with Muskogee County Health Department and Muskogee Farmer’s Market to provide information regarding public safety and awareness. There will also be a bicycle rodeo and the first 50 children to participate in the bicycle rodeo will receive a free bicycle safety helmet.

Because of the tragedy in Moore, Muskogee County EMS, in cooperation with Muskogee County Emergency Management and Direct Traffic Control, will be accepting donations for the tornado victims and rescue personnel. Items needed are trash bags, batteries, flashlights, bottled water, non-perishable food items, hand sanitizer, diapers, baby wipes, baby formula and toiletries. At this time we are not accepting clothing donations. We will have a drive-thru donation site set-up from 8 a.m. to noon at the Muskogee Civic Center during Muskogee County EMS Safety Day.
