A mobile tetanus clinic will be patrolling the city limits from 8:30 a.m. to noon offering tetanus immunizations to anyone wanting one. The tetanus clinic will be operated by the Ottawa County Health Department and Linda Davis, RN, of the Northeastern Tribal Clinic.

A "lost and found" will be established at the Quapaw City Hall at 410 Main where residents can claim items during regular business hours.

Donations are also being collected to help the victims. The First State Bank of Commerce has established the "Quapaw Citizen Relief Fund" to help those affected. Donations will be accepted at at 101 N. Mickey Mantle. A committee will be determined to administer the funds.
