Ardmore First Responders Acquire

Lucas 3 Chest Compression System

Alabama State Rep. Andy Whitt spent some time with members of the Ardmore First Responders Sunday, February 21, 2021 inspecting the Lucas 3 chest compression system which Rep. Whitt helped the responders buy.

Ardmore First Responders use the Lucas 3 chest compression system when individuals are in cardiac arrest. The Lucas 3 eliminates first responder fatigue during CPR. The Lucas 3 device delivers chest compressions at the appropriate rate and depth allowing the responder to concentrate on any additional problems a patient develop.

Money for the Lucas 3 chest compression system, that cost $15,777.00, came from state of Alabama Cares Act Funding. Rep. Whitt was instrumental in helping the Ardmore First Responders receive the funds for the new equipment.
