Each of these carts will provide certain things for the Emergency Room. "They have a hydraulic lift, a brake, and a scale," Jelinek said.

The other cart has a higher weight limit." Giving Hearts Day is set for Feb. 13. "It starts on February 13 and goes from 12:01 AM until 11:59 PM,"Je- linek said.
