Love City’s Own Oxygen Generator Is Up and Running


On Tuesday, May 7, St. John became the first island in the Caribbean to have an Oxygen Generator Systems Inc oxygen generator.

With a way now to produce its own oxygen, that means no more trips to St. Thomas or St. Croix to purchase oxygen for the island’s emergency services agencies.

Service manager Mary Grace Keenan, from the manufacturer Oxygen Generator Systems Inc,  traveled from New York to install the generator and to train St. John Rescue members in its use and maintenance. 

The oxygen generator was purchased for $60,000 through donations by private benefactors and through the efforts of the Rotary Club of St. John, the Rotary Club of Buckhannon, West Virginia, Rotary e Club of Puerto Rico, The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International and Rotary Districts 7020, 6530 and 7000.

Now St. John EMS, Fire Service, National Park Service, and, of course, St. John Rescue have access to an unlimited supply of oxygen right here on St. John. 

Members of St. John Rescue will be trained and will then establish a schedule for the filling of oxygen bottles during the week.

Having medical grade oxygen available on St. John will save time and money for all agencies.
St. John Rescue members are proud to be serving the community by providing the best possible life saving services to residents and visitors. 

Of course the group is always in need of donations to help ensure that St. John Rescue can keep providing emergency medical services. Please consider a donation or consider joining the dynamic organization.
