CPR Devices Added to Local Emergency Response Vehicles


October 9, 2017 

The Defibtech LifeLine ARM Chest Compression devices were delivered to local agencies last week following 'Train the Trainer' sessions held at the Marshall Regional Law Enforcement Center on Thursday and Friday. MAFFAA received six units, allowing for deployment on each ambulance used by the agency. 

MAFFAA Paramedics and EMTs will complete initial training on the equipment throughout the week of October 9th, and the devices will be in use soon. Once the devices are in use, emergency medical personnel will be able to continue delivering effective chest compressions to the patient in cardiac arrest while simultaneously performing additional interventions. 

 


Ambulance Authority Equipment Millage

On May 2, 2017, Marshall area voters approved a 0.2 mill request to aid the agency with equipment replacement costs for a period of 10 years starting in December of 2017. The request passed with a 72% 'yea' vote. Once again, we are overwhelmed by the support of the people in our community. Your support with the passage of this request will provide assistance with the ongoing costs associated with equipment purchases and maintenance. Thank you once again for your continued support.
