SOUTH SALEM, N.Y. -- The Lewisboro Volunteer Ambulance Corps (LVAC) announced that it recently teamed up with South Salem firefighters for drill to test a special CPR method.

The method, according to LVAC, is intended to save firefighters who go into cardiac arrest at the scenes of emergencies.

LVAC describes the technique as follows, "In a display of practical choreography, CPR compressions are immediately started while other first responders coordinate the removal of heavy turn out coats, gear, helmets, boots, O2 masks and self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), all in one swift, efficient movement that does not interfere with the application of CPR compressions given by one of the rescuers."
