Fredonia Fire Department Ambulance Defibrillator Fundraising Campaign 2015
Did you know it costs you less than 9 cents/day person for all of the fire and ambulance equipment that is currently used in your community.
This is minimal when it comes to protecting your life and property.
The current model defibrillator that the fire department uses is a LIFEPAK 12
It is now 12 years old and since July 2012, is no longer supported by it's manufacturer. Repair and parts will become increasingly harder to find in the coming years.
Defibrillators help to save a persons life. This machine does more than send an electric pulse to restart an improperly beating heart. This specific unit can check oxygen levels in blood, carbon monoxide levels in the lungs, monitor heart rate, body temperature, and blood pressure. Above all else, this unit can send a 12 lead EKG (electro cardio-gram) to the hospital to allow a cardiologist to asses a cardiac event and diagnose the best treatment at the earliest time from the actual event.
Our department does not currently have the funds to purchase this unit, so we need to fundraise for this equipment.
With all the required options, these units cost $37,831.71 - Please consider a donation to help us reach our goal!
