Update: Here is a picture.
A big thanks goes to the Masonic South Shore Lodge #3 for its $2,350 donation to the South Milwaukee Police Department for new officer and citizen safety equipment.
Lodge members made the donation at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, saying that the contribution fits in well with its goals of serving others and helping the community.
Police will use the funds to purchase tourniquets and combat gauze for each of the department’s 32 officers, as well as some extras.
The equipment will be used to treat officers and others at critical incidents to hopefully stabilize the patient before first responders arrive – important lifesaving gear that is a welcome addition for the department.
