VISTA, N.Y. – The Vista Fire Department recently purchased a state-of-the-art electric CPR device and has been training its firefighters on its use.
The Lucas 2 electric CPR device performs manual chest compressions at a high volume without compromising quality, Vista Fire Department Chief Jeff Peck said in a press release.
“It helps first responders from not being tired during CPR compressions by giving adequate chest compressions in accordance with the latest CPR guidelines,” Peck said.
The fire chief is also looking to add more emergency medical technicians and ambulance drivers to the department’s ranks.
