Megan Roseman, a Collinsville 5th grader, is doing odd jobs, trying to raise funds to attend a junior leaders’ conference in Washington DC this summer.
Megan was nominated to attend the conference by one of her teachers for the work she does with younger children in the special-education classes at
Her goal is to learn leadership skills to help her become a special education teacher one day.
So we thought we could hire her for the day to help out around the City. Megan spent a day working at the City helping out each department.
Megan’s goal is to raise 5,000 dollars. Three thousand of this will pay for her trip and the rest of the money she raises will be donated to the special
education classes at Collinsville unit 10.
The employees at the City of Collinsville chipped in and raised over $300 for Megan’s trip.
We wish Megan the best and thank her for her day of hard work at the City of Collinsville.
If you would like to help Megan reach her goal you can contact her mom, Lisa Roseman at email@example.com or donate money to a Gofundme account that has been set up at Gofundme.com/meganroseman
The City of Collinsville partnered with Pat & Leonard Reitz to bring you the Hometown Heroes Banner Program. The Banners will be on display in
Uptown Collinsville until after Veteran's Day 2016. This is the first year for the banner program and it has been a huge success with over 140
banners purchased by local family members of our armed services.
Below is the video of the Dedication Ceremony held September 24, 2016. Thank you to Pat & Leonard Reitz for organizing this great program, and
of course, thank you to the Veterans and their families for their dedication and service to our country.
The Mission Lifeline award was recently received by the Collinsville Fire Department.
The Mission Lifeline is an initiative started by the American Heart Association to
address gaps in cardiac care with the goal of improving outcomes through a combined
effort between EMS, Emergency Room, and the cardiac catheterization lab. The
program is a coordinated and proactive system that allows both EMS and hospital staff
to function as a single team with the purpose of improving survival and over all
outcomes from acute coronary syndromes. The parameters used to measure success
are based on a 90 min time window from first medical contact to the revascularization of
the effected artery. In addition, the department is rated on a set of protocols for which
patients should receive a 12- Lead ECG in the field and our compliance to these
The Collinsville Fire Department has received the Silver award this year, a step up from
the Bronze level recognition received last year. This designation indicated we are an
effective partner in improving overall outcomes and reducing the likelihood of significant
disability or death. In 2015, we diagnosed and treated 11 ST- Elevated myocardial
infarctions with excellent outcomes occurring in all cases. These are 11 residents who
previously would have experienced lengthy delays in their care and the probability of a
negative outcome would be high.
At the City Council Meeting June 27th, 2016, Mission Lifelife Director Art Miller presented Captain Tim Rainey, along with Mayor John Miller & City Manager Mitch Bair the award from the American Heart Association.
