Miracle Ear in Bartlesville is gathering bottled water to distribute to Washington County first responders to help them battle their thirst as they fight fires and medical emergencies.

As of Monday, the local hearing aid business had rounded up around 111 cases of bottled water for firefighters, emergency medical services, police and other first responders in Bartlesville, Copan, Dewey and Ochelata.

“This time of year it’s super hot, and this is one less basic essential that first responders have to think about when we do our water drive,” said Echo Ennis, Miracle Ear’s office manager.

At 30 to 40 bottles of water per case, the business has stacks and stacks of multiple packs of bottled water available to fire, EMS and police departments.
