Georgetown Fire now has a Zoll AutoPulse!

The Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department has purchased a Zoll AutoPulse Resuscitation System! The AutoPulseĀ® Resuscitation System provides high-quality automated CPR to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Easy to use and battery operated, AutoPulse squeezes the patientā€™s entire chest to improve blood flow to the heart and brain.

CPR is an extremely physical life saving procedure that can require many people to administer. It is also very difficult to maintain high quality CPR during the long transports from The Divide or in other tight quarters. The AutoPulse solves many of these issues while allowing our responders to focus more clearly on other important patient treatment that is required during these situations.

This purchase was made by the volunteer organization with funds donated by community members as well as local organizations. We would like to thank all the donors, with a special thanks to Needle Nellies and the Georgetown Healthcare Auxiliary, for making this purchase possible.

It should be noted that the volunteer fire organization is supported completely by donations from community members and organizations.

The Georgetown Gazette has a front page article in the June 27th edition if you’d like more information.

The Zoll AutoPulse will be carried on the first-out engine and will respond to all CPR calls in the district. Would you like to see the new device? Visit the Fire Department on Main St. during business hours.
