Richardsville Fire Department & Rescue Squad's current calls
On February 13, 2015, RVFDRS conducted monthly EMS training for its members. Members learned about the LUCAS device. RVFDRS would like to thank Co. 11 for the use of their device for our training. The LUCAS device is an efficient and safe tool that standardizes chest compressions in accordance with the latest scientific guidelines. It provides the same quality for all patients and over time, independent of transport conditions, rescuer fatigue, or variability in the experience level of the caregiver. By doing this, it frees up rescuers to focus on other life-saving tasks and creates new rescue opportunities. Members also had refresher training on the AED and the Lifepak.
