POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 state representative and an ambulance service teamed up to donate first aid kits to the Pocahontas Police Department.
State Representative Scott Baltz donated the first aid kit bags and Pro-Med Ambulance in Pocahontas stocked the bags with first aid supplies like scissors, gauze and bandages.
Pocahontas Police Chief Cecil Tackett estimates that each kit costs about $100.
Representative Baltz and Pro-Med donated enough supplies for 20 kits.
Chief Tackett said they would have had to pay for the equipment out of pocket before this donation.
Now, they have enough kits for each police car, multiple kits for the tactical unit and extras in case of an emergency situation.
