Eagle Ford: ESD No. 1 stays the course
LA VERNIA -- The Wilson County Emergency Services District (ESD) No. 1 continues moving ahead on several key initiatives.
Board President Roberta Ensor said after the board’s March 14 meeting that work continues on preplanning with area businesses and that the ESD awaits a decision on its application for a PowerUp grant from the Guadalupe Valley Electrical Cooperative. If awarded, the funds will be used toward outfitting Rehab 1, a vehicle that will be used to provide services to firefighters at fire scenes.
Ensor also said that the ESD’s service provider -- the La Vernia Volunteer Fire Department -- continues itsfirst-responder training with the La Vernia Emergency Medical Services. Upon conclusion of the training, the firefighters will be familiar with the locations of items stocked on the ambulances, so that they might provide care until emergency medical technicians arrive at the scene of an emergency.
Discussions also continue related to the location of a third station for the fire department. Ensor said the push for a station located in the area of the former Quail Run golf course on F.M. 539 was initiated after a preliminary audit by the International Organization for Standardization indicated another was needed. The audit, she said, actually recommended four stations be located within the ESD’s coverage area.
