The volunteer organization Box 100 is seeking volunteer members to help provide support services to first responders. Box 100 members assist the city’s emergency departments with such duties such as crowd and traffic control, providing rehab to personnel on lengthy and/or exhausting emergency calls, securing areas at emergency scenes as required, and any other tasks requested by incident commanders.
Box 100 volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are continually training in storm readiness, CPR, and emergency response preparedness in order to aid our community in the event of an emergency.
Most recently, Box 100 members provided extensive help in the city-wide food and toy drive for local families in need. Additionally, five volunteers were on the scene at the Specialty Arms II fire on Christmas morning, providing coffee, water, and gatorade for firefighters, police, and other responders.
If you are interested in becoming a Box 100 volunteer, the organization will meet on Monday, January 9th at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at Fire Station 3, located at 301 Bill Stewart Blvd. in LaVergne.
