ZFD Unveils New Mechanical CPR Devices
The Zionsville Fire Department has unveiled four newly acquired state-of the-art CPR devices. These devices enable firefighters to mechanically perform CPR on patients.
The device is designed to provide consistent, high-quality mechanical chest compressions that meet the American Heart Association standards for rate, depth and speed during CPR. The device allows first-responders to keep CPR going while a patient is being moved.
A device will be placed on each of ZFD's three frontline ambulances. The fourth device will be placed on the reserve ambulance.
