  • Winsted Ambulance is proud to announce the addition of a 2nd Lucas CPR "machine". This will allow us to have a Lucas on our primary ambulance as well as our secondary ambulance. The device has proven to be very helpful during any cardiac arrest, but especially in complicated situation like a cardiac arrest on the roof of a house and another one just the other day following a cold water rescue. Despite the added benefits of having the Lucas and the other tools, the most important part in a cardiac arrest is still YOU! Would you know what to do? Come and learn CPR with us...and help us save a life! www.winstedambulance.org/cpr
