2018 Fire & Police Chili Supper - Christmas Store Benefit

January 21, 2018 - Norman Transcript - Tradition, community and chili. Norman Police Officer Thomas Zermeno said that’s what the annual chili supper benefit is all about. “This is something [a lot of folks] look forward to every year, and it’s something they don’t miss,” Zermeno said.

An estimated 700 tickets were sold Thursday evening during the 42nd installment of the supper at Norman High School. He said it has come a long way since it began 42 years ago. “When the supper first started, we had to pay money out of our own pocket. Because of the community, every bit goes to the Cleveland County Christmas Store,” Zermeno said. He said the supper has benefited the store since the beginning.

Christmas Store spokesperson Charles Hollingsworth said the event goes beyond the money. “At the event, there is a great sense of community,” he said. “There are citizens, as well as representatives from the Norman fire, OU and Norman police departments. It’s just everyone coming together to make their community better.”

Hollingsworth said the store’s purpose, which is in its 48th year, is to ensure low-income families in Cleveland County have a Christmas.

Zermeno credited the many volunteers that show up to help with the supper each year. “We probably had about 30 volunteers from the community come out and help,” Zermeno said. “We’ve never had a situation where we were short on volunteers. If there’s one thing I found out is this community is very giving, really cares and when you ask for help, people will respond to the call. It’s a wonderful thing.”

One volunteer was Norman North freshman Grace Teuscher, who said she has helped at the supper for the last four years. “I really enjoy talking with all of the people that come out,” she said.

Volunteers also came from outside Norman city limits. Seth Williams, a Moore High School senior, said this year was the second year he has been involved with the event, and it won’t be his last. “It’s such a great environment to be in,” Williams said.

Zermeno said although he couldn’t definitively say how much was raised Thursday, he was confident it was over $7,000. He said last year, the supper raised $7,434. The biggest year was in 2016, when the supper made over $8,500.

Norman Fire Department Starts Bicycle Response Team
BY DEANNE STEIN, NEWS 9

November 11, 2017 - NORMAN, Oklahoma - Norman Firefighters are rolling out a faster way to respond to emergencies. On Saturday, the department deployed a new bicycle response team to monitor crowded events. “They're excited to get out there and use it,” said Captain Robert Carrick with the Norman Fire Department.

Carrick said his firefighters are typically first on the scene of an emergency.
“That basically is how the Norman Fire Department is, a mini ambulance to get there while they're waiting for an ambulance, so we can start pretreatment.”
However, when there's a crowd, getting there can take extra time that a patient doesn't have to wait. “The engine can only go so far with the crowds and then they'll have to get out and walk to those events,” he said.

So, on those days, they will park the engine and head out on two wheels.
“When we have a large event, we'll deploy the bike teams and they can just cruise around and be able to access patients quicker,” Carrick said.

The new Bicycle Response Team monitors events like the OU-TCU game on Saturday to give extra support to Norman Regional EMSSTAT teams already on site. “The first couple of OU home games they had 100’s of medical calls just inside the stadium,” he said.

The department bought eight new bikes to add to their response arsenal. The firefighters who ride them are EMT certified. Paired in two-person teams, they ride together to bring medical care straight to the patient. Each bicycle is equipped with medical supplies to treat everything from a scratch to a heart attack. “We're just going to get there earlier than the ambulance possibly could, start pre-treatment to get everything rolling so the patient has a better chance, better outcome,” Carrick said.

The team also will be used during parades, festivals and fairs.


Norman Fire Department to Offer Advanced Level Emergency Care

April 13, 2016 - The Norman Fire Department’s medical first responders are now certified for, and will begin to provide, advanced level of emergency care, in addition to the basic level medical care currently provided. The new increased level of emergency care will begin Thursday.

“Since we are often first on the scene in a medical emergency, we are very grateful for the support of our community that allows us to provide a higher level of care in those serious or life-threatening situations in which every minute matters,” said Interim Fire Chief Jim Bailey. Bailey said the fire department responds to approximately 8700 calls for medical assistance each year, which is 69% of the total calls for service received by the department. (More here...)
