Good news keeps coming for Marple Twp Ambulance and our community! We have received a grant in the amount of $39,000 to purchase (2) Physio-Control Lucas 3 automatic CPR compression devices. This grant was awarded to us from the Department of Homeland Security, Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG). This grant enables us to provide the community we serve with the most effective tool to ensure quality CPR and also will ensure our personnel to safely be secured in the back of an ambulance. Right now, our personnel are providing manual CPR which is tiresome and unsafe as we are not restrained in a moving vehicle.
We would like to thank David from Firehousegrants.com for his assistance with our application process.
Remember Marple EMS provides FREE community Hands Only CPR classes to anyone wanting to learn this important skill. It could save one of your loved ones or even a complete stranger in need of help!
