The Lucas Chest Compression System that Cedar Mountain Fire-Rescue Dept. plans to buy allows firefighters to keep CPR going while a patient is on a stretcher and while the patient is being moved, even over a trail. The devise will be on display Saturday, Oct. 10, during a spaghetti drive-thru fundraiser. (Photo courtesy by Ellen Myers, a member of the Cedar Mountain Axillary)

Spaghetti Supper

Hungry? Don't want to cook? Be sure to come to the Cedar Mountain Fire Rescue Auxiliary drive-thru fundraiser at the Cedar Mountain Community Center from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 10. The menu will be home baked spaghetti, salad, bread and a cookie. The suggested donation is $10.

It was necessary to do the drive-thru at the community center, so the bay doors at the fire station would not be blocked.

Lucas Chest Compression System

The proceeds of the spaghetti drive-thru will go toward the purchase of a LUCAS Chest Compression System for the Cedar Mountain Fire-Rescue Dept. This device delivers high-quality chest compressions for extended periods of time. The device will be used to help save those who suffer a heart attack known as a Code Blue. When a heart attack occurs in a remote location it is nearly impossible to perform adequate CPR while a person is being carried over a trail. This device will give consistent compressions under any conditions and increase the chance of survival.

We will have one of these devices available for viewing at the drive-thru. The Lucas device costs about $15,000, so any donation you would like to make toward its purchase would be welcomed.

Cedar Mountain Historical Calendars

The 2021 calendars are for sale at Whistlestop, Creekside, the Cedar Mountain Cafe, and the Hiker and the Hound for a donation of $15. Stop in and get yours now before they run out.

The Cedar Mountain History 2021 calendars will also be available for purchase at the spaghetti supper drive thru on Oct. 10. The calendars benefit the Cedar Mountain Community Center.

Blood Drives

The next blood drive will be on Oct. 17. There will also be a blood drive on Dec. 19. Blood drives are held between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. at the Cedar Mountains Fire Department. Those whose lives have been saved by your donations thank you.

Around The House

By Linda Young

I've been transitioning my closet from summer clothing to my winter things. Even though we are still having some "shorts" days, colder weather has its eye on us. Now is a good time to weed out items that you didn't wear last year and donate them to charity. There are others out there who could really use that warm sweater that no longer interests you.

Thank you for reading the Cedar Mountain News. Your contributions and comments are encouraged and welcome. We'd like to hear what's going on if you would like to share. Photos are welcome as well.

Please email your news or any questions to [email protected] by Monday evening.
