Bison and Reva area Emergency Medical Technicians

The two vehicle, five victim car accident at the junction of Highway 20 and 75 (Matthew’s Corner) on July 25th certainly looked real to the passing traffic as two wreckers, two ambulances and one highway patrol car all had lights flashing. Many stopped to offer their help. It seemed pretty real to the EMTs gathered for class that evening as Jody Moody, EMT and highway patrol on duty was at class and received the call for help from the sheriffs office. He instructed all staff and both ambulances to come to the scene.

Cap Man. This vehicle has been covered in bottle caps. The owners of the pickup said they have collected bottle caps and friends have also contributed to the cause. They are glued on with silicone. (Bet they don’t like bottle openers.)
