Reisterstown VFC receives BGE Emergency Response Grant

The Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company was awarded an Emergency Response and Safety grant from BGE.  The grant will be used to purchase a Lucas CPR chest compression system (it will cover $8,000 of the $14,000 cost).  The Lucas will perform chest compressions on patients in cardiac arrest and will allow personnel that  would be performing chest compressions to perform other patient care tasks.  It will perform consistent compressions without fatigue and makes it easier for EMS personnel to move patients without any interruption in CPR.

The members and officers of the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company would like to thank BGE for awarding the grant to our community!
