According to a post from Dec. 16 on the Southern Stone County Fire Protection District Facebook Page, the organization has LUCAS devices that have been placed in service for cardiac cases.
The full post is below:
Southern Stone County Fire Protection District is continuing our mission in providing the best care to those we took an oath to serve and protect. Today, we are taking a huge step in that direction and have placed in service three LUCAS 3 devices which will provide a higher level of care when it matters most...during cardiac arrest incidents.
These LUCAS devices assist with providing high quality chest compressions to help circulate blood to the brain and body when a heart stops working. The LUCAS device is recognized worldwide as an invaluable tool during cardiac arrest events.
We thank the people who live, work and play here in our beautiful area for their continued support. We also thank the Board of Directors and our Responders who make our fire district something we can all be proud of!
