Sauk Prairie Ambulance has a new tool that will help improve an individual’s chance of survival. After receiving approval from the Ambulance Commission, Sauk Prairie Ambulance purchased three new Lifepak 15 monitor/defibrillators – one for each of its fleet. The three new units replaced three, 15-year-old models, and do the work of five different machines, according to Kevin Weber, Sauk Prairie Ambulance Director. “It’s the newest and greatest model,” Weber said. “It’s quite an upgrade from the previous Lifepak 15’s we had.” Weber said the cost for the three machines was just over $81,000 and that was with a government discount and trade-in value for the older defibrillators.
