On February 14, 2020, we were honored by Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto for our work to support first responders and to help the city’s EMS Bureau acquire a LUCAS device that can save lives.
The LUCAS device provides chest compressions and sustains circulation during prolonged resuscitation attempts. Even before paramedics arrive, first responders can use the LUCAS device and help save a life. (LUCAS stands for Lund University Cardiopulmonary Assist System.)
