Victims of car crashes and other accidental injuries who are picked up by area first responders and rescue workers for transport to the hospital can now feel a little safer, thanks to a donation of new, x-ray ready backboards by the St. Mary’s Foundation.


Members of Lake Park Alert, Frazee Rescue, Audubon Rescue, the Detroit Lakes Fire Department and St. Mary’s EMS were gifted with the new backboards last Thursday at Essentia Health-St. Mary’s in Detroit Lakes.
