Badge & Bar: $13K machine donated to Gainesville Fire Department
Placeholder Image
Today, the Gainesville Fire Department is set to receive something that will get hearts pumping. The agency is receiving a $13,000 chest compression machine, known as a LUCAS, celebrating the gift at the Shallowford Road Firehouse Subs at 10:30 a.m. The LUCAS machine compresses 30 times before allowing a paramedic to breathe for the injured person. Hall County Fire Services already has four of these devices, but the hope is to have one for every engine.
