LMVRS Receives Lifesaving Equipment Grant Award from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation
The Lake Monticello Volunteer Rescue Squad is better equipped to keep all community members safe thanks to a grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The $14,267.50 grant will be used to purchase a Lucas CPR Assist Device, fulfilling a critical need within the department.
We are committed to helping organizations such as the Lake Monticello Volunteer Rescue Squad continue their lifesaving work within local communities. We are honored to be able to award this grant and do our part to ensure that Lake Monticello and Fluvanna County are safer for everyone, including first responders,” said Robin Peters, executive director, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.
“The Lake Monticello Volunteer Rescue Squad is delighted to receive the assistance of the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for the purchase of this life-saving piece of equipment. We will be better able to respond to cardiac emergencies because of this grant,” said R. John Lye, Assistant Chief for Operations, LMVRS.
The Lucas CPR Assist Device will be used to allow crews to better perform high-quality CPR on patients who have suffered a cardiac arrest, and will allow medics to administer medications without having to worry about providing quality chest compressions at the same time.
The grant was one of 67 Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation awarded to public safety organizations across the country during the most recent grant application period. The 67 grants total more than $1.2 million.
