Press Release –
The WPSA PowerSports ATV Tour’s Safety Team, Trauma Care Emergency Services, was in action in Indiana, both on the track during the AMSOIL Wild Cat Open Championship at Wild Cat Creek MX, and in a Meijers in Lafayette, Ind.
The team, comprising Lewis McClain, Josh Wheelis, and Jason Sheppard, put out a small fire at the store Thursday night.
“We were in there, buying some boots when we heard someone yell ‘Fire,'” said McClain. “We turned around and saw flames and smoke. So we teamed up, each of us grabbed fire extinguishers, and put out the fire.
“That’s a first for us,” added McClain. “We’ve put out a burning clothes rack before!”
Trauma Care Services travels to every WPSA PowerSports ATV Tour venue across the country, providing everything from treatment for dehydration and bumps and bruises to full trauma care. The company is based out of Atlanta.
