Great News for Spencer Residents!
In April, 2014, Spencer Rescue & Emergency Squad was awarded a grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Executive Office for Administration and Finance, Promoting Community Development and Tourism in Central and Western Massachusetts program. This grant will pay for the purchase of two (2) Lucas chest compression devices. The amount of the grant award and the cost of the equipment is $27,928.45. Spencer Rescue Squad is the first EMS agency in our surrounding area to carry these devices.
The LUCAS™ Chest Compression System is a safe and efficient tool that standardises chest compressions in accordance with the latest scientific guidelines. It provides the same quality for all patients and over time, independent of transport conditions, rescuer fatigue, or variability in the experience level of the caregiver. By doing this, it frees up rescuers to focus on other life-saving tasks and creates new rescue opportunities. Experimental studies show that the mechanically controlled LUCAS™ compressions are able to sustain a higher blood flow to the brain and heart compared to manual compressions.
Spencer Rescue & Emergency Squad wishes to thank Senator Stephen Brewer and his staff for their assistance in helping us secure these funds.
