AVFD Deploys LUCAS CPR Device
The Atascocita Volunteer Fire Department (AVFD) has deployed the LUCAS CPR Device on all of the department’s ambulances. The LUCAS Device, made by Physio Control, is designed to provide constant and consistent chest compressions during cardiac arrest. The device allows the paramedics to focus on other critical and life saving interventions, while providing quality CPR.
AMBUS Training Video Released
The AMBUS Training video teaser has been released. AVFD had a significant role in the development and shooting of this video. The State AMBUS Group meeting put about a year of planning, design and filming into making this a reality. As you watch the video you should be able to pick out the AVFD AMBUS, as well as, AVFD staff that participated in the video. The opening scenario in the video is an active shooter incident and we shot that at the BBVA Compass Soccer Stadium with the Houston Fire Department.
