The Orrington Fire & Rescue Department has received a grant of over $20,000, for a device to help first responders on the scene of a cardiac arrest.
The grant is through the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation.
Called the Lucas device, it allows first responders to tend to those in need quicker.
It takes an average of six to eight people to save a cardiac arrest patient.
This device helps departments that could be facing low staff numbers.
"You can become fatigued, your compressions may be slightly less," said Orrington Fire & Rescue Department Assistant Fire Chief Chad Bean. "We're looking to achieve a certain rate and a certain depth, and what this piece of equipment allows us to do is to just have it all preset so it's going to run those rates and those depths consistently."
