The Tusayan Fire District recently received new life-saving equipment to help those suffering from cardiac arrest or a heart attack. Thanks to a grant from Arizona Public Service (APS) and the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, the Tusayan Fire District bought a Lucas Automatic Chest Compression System, which saves individuals experiencing sudden cardiac arrest or a heart attack. The equipment delivers nonstop consistent chest compressions when a patient is being transported to a nearby hospital. Sudden cardiac arrest is among the leading causes of death in the United States. According to the American Heart Association, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest claims the lives of nearly 350,000 people in the United States each year. “We have a long history of supporting the work of Arizona’s first responders,” said Mikenzie Lindsey, APS Community Impact Specialist.
