Wabasha Ambulance Service
The Wabasha Ambulance Service has been able to purchase some expensive equipment thanks to a successful fund drive that was recently completed.
Ambulance Director Sean Lathrop says $40,000 was raised in a year and a-half from various donations, including a $17,000 grant from the University of Minnesota.
The funds have been used to purchase two pieces of equipment.
One is a Lucas Two automatic C-P-R device that provides perfect chest compressions to a person suffering cardiac arrest. The other is a drill that inserts a needle into the leg of an unconscious person to begin quick and rapid delivery of fluids into a person's body.
The two devices were purchased for each of the Wabasha ambulance vehicles.
