LDS Student Helps Emergency Service Agencies Prepare

SPRINGVILLE, UTAH -- An 18-year-old LDS student is helping the Utah County Search and Rescue Team get prepared for mass casualty scenarios. Trent Clifton, a Springville High School student, has worked with the team for more than two years, making 16 backboards for the emergency services agencies in the county. "It is really important for us to have these boards, especially right now with the Olympics coming," said Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Hodgson. "Clifton saw we had a need and he took it upon himself to fill that need." Clifton spent about 30 hours creating the boards, but acquiring money and materials for the project took much longer. "Probably going door to door was the most difficult aspect of this project for me," Clifton said. "I really don't like doing that." But Clifton will face that same prospect soon. He plans to serve an LDS Church mission before studying orthodonia at BYU.
