Fire Department Awarded for Life Saving Program

The ability to provide on-site CPR can mean the difference between life and death in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, and the Boulder City Fire Department was recognized for a program designed to ensure such care never takes more than 90 seconds away.

The fire department is one of six finalists for the Cashman Good Government Award, presented annually by the Nevada Taxpayers Association to recognize organizations and individuals that find ways to provide services that are better, faster, and less expensive than existing alternatives. Boulder City was nominated in the Cities Under 100,000 category.

The winner will be announced later this month in Carson City.

The community CPR/AED program aims to place 43 AED units within businesses throughout the community within 300 feet of each other. The devices are listed in a directory used by police dispatchers and linked to a national database via the PulsePoint AED app, which is available for most mobile devices.

The fire department also offers corporate CPR/AED training, whether or not an AED is present on site.

This nomination marks the second time Boulder City has been recognized by the NTA, most recently in 2020, for a program that refinanced some of the city’s bonds at a low interest rate, resulting in taxpayer savings of nearly $5 million. dollars led.

Gas station is temporarily closed

The fuel dock at Katherine Landing on Lake Mohave will be closed immediately through March 31 for a modernization project.

In partnership with the park’s concessionaire, Katherine Landing at the Lake Mohave Marina, the project will enhance visitor experiences by replacing a system dating back to the early 1970s. The new system will support services by securely providing fuel and 47 new temporary berths for visitors and their vessels.

As part of the process, Marina One (Docks Q, R, S, T or U) will be de-energized.

Land-based fuel will be available during the closure, as will the facilities at Cottonwood Cove.

“We are very excited about this project,” said Julie Drugatz, director of commercial services for Lake Mead National Recreation Area. “This partnership continues to enhance the experience of Katherine Landing’s more than 1 million annual visitors.”
