Lumpkin LUCAS Project
From Lumpkin Lucas Project
The Leadership Lumpkin County Class of 2016 is raising awareness and funds to purchase a LUCAS chest compression device for our Lumpkin County EMS. The cost of just one of these devices is around $13,000, but the investment into the lives of those in our community is priceless. We invite YOU to join us on this fundraising journey to help our first responders get the equipment they need to help increase survival rates for victims of cardiac arrest.
A LUCAS Device is a portable, re-chargable piece of equipment that performs steady chest compressions during the process of CPR. The device frees paramedics to perform other life-saving interventions until assistance arrives on the scene.
