UPPERCO PURCHASES A VITAL PIECE OF LIFE SAVING EQUIPMENT

By Chief Jeff Wickline
March 16, 2018

The Upperco VFC is extremely proud to announce the purchase of one of the most vital pieces of life saving equipment made, a new LUCAS Chest Compression System. This system will be placed in service once our membership has been fully trained. It is a proven fact that early and effective chest compressions along with an AED is the key to life saving CPR. The LUCAS device allows providers to maintain sustained, high quality chest compressions throughout the EMS pre-hospital care scenario.

Due to the northwest section of our county being very rural, and the extended travel times to the nearest hospitals, this LUCAS device will be a critical component to the quality EMS care that we strive to provide to our citizens. With a price tag of above $14,000, this purchase has been made possible by contributions of our devoted community members.
