ANNUAL PANCAKE BREAKFAST RAISES FUNDS FOR ZOLL AUTOPULSE
Are you looking for one of the best breakfasts in Newaygo during Labor Day Weekend? If so, the Newaygo Fire Department is once again holding its annual Fireman’s Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, September 1 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Newaygo Fire Department located at 177 Cooperative Center Drive, Newaygo, MI, 49337.
Last year over 300 people attended donating over $4,000 to help the department secure an enclosed trailer for its Dive Rescue Team.
“We are grateful to live in such a supporting community,” said Travis Kroll, Captain at Newaygo Fire Department. “With the funds raised last year, along with sponsorships, we were able to purchase this trailer.
This year, money raised will be used toward the future purchase of a The AutoPulse® Resuscitation System for the department. This system provides high-quality automated CPR to victims of sudden cardiac arrest, helping improve the chance of saving a life.
“Our members are always looking for ways to improve the outcome for those we protect,” said Jason Wolford, Chief of Newaygo Fire Department. “This device can reduce the physical stress our firefighters encounter when providing CPR.”
The annual pancake breakfast is held during Newaygo’s Logging Festival. It consists of eggs, sausage, tater tots, juice, coffee and, of course, pancakes—all cooked by Newaygo Firefighters. The public is encouraged to attend and the cost is by donation.
Captain Kroll adds, “We take pride in everything we do and enjoy having opportunities to bond with our community outside of stressful emergency situations.”
