Jaws of Life Provision

Newspaper reporter Eddie Ellis witnessed one accident where a dump truck had a person pinned into their vehicle. This incident had a lengthy extrication due to the hand tools and manually operated hydraulic tools being used for extrication. After seeing this accident Mr. Ellis took it on himself to write articles requesting donations for the rescue squad to purchase a Jaws of Life that cost $10,000. In less than 30 days the rescue squad had a little over $10,000 to purchase this much-needed tool.
