Cherokee County Ambulance District # 3 would like to thank the Ronald O. Thomas Foundation for their recent generous donation. With their donation the ambulance district was able to buy one Lucas 3 CPR machine. The LUCAS™ Chest Compression System assists first responders and paramedics by providing effective and uninterrupted chest compressions on sudden cardiac arrest patients. Rescuers are freed up to focus on other critical life-saving tasks, such as ventilation, medication and defibrillation, which leads to an increased focus on cardiac arrest management. Once again, Cherokee County Ambulance District # 3 wants to thank the Ronald O. Thomas Foundation for providing this life saving piece of equipment.
