Waverly’s Fire and Rescue Department has a few new tools in its arsenal after receiving some help from Waverly Area Kiwanis and the Nebraska-Iowa Kiwanis District Foundation. At an event at the Waverly Fire Station on Monday night, the fire department revealed three new pieces of equipment made specifically for rescuing children and infants: a pediatric pulse oximeter, a pediatric immobilizing air mattress and a scoop stretcher. The price tag on the three items totaled $3,006, but there was no cost to the fire and rescue department. Most of the funding came from a grant from the Nebraska-Iowa Kiwanis District Foundation ($1,920), and the Waverly Area Kiwanis club footed the rest of the bill ($1,086).
