For years, the paramedics and EMTs working from Hall Ambulance’s Post 17 in Boron, have formed a kinship with the members of the Boron Senior Center where they provide regularly scheduled bloodpressure checks.
Eight years ago, Paramedic Ken Sexton and EMT Donnie Self thought it would be nice to do something special for the seniors and the community they serve, so they decided to host a barbecue, with expenses for the event covered through donations of the Hall Ambulance paramedics, EMTs and paramedic field supervisors working in Boron.
Proceeds from the lunch benefit the Boron Senior Center and their weekly lunch program.
The EMS workers start at dawn preparing approximately 30 pounds each of wood-fired tri-tip and chicken complete with corn-on-the-cob, coleslaw, and baked beans. Last year, more than 80 barbecue meals were served, with an additional 30 meals being ordered for take-out by members of the community wanting to support this unique event benefiting Boron’s senior population.
