As many of you are aware, wait times for ambulances have increased throughout the years. With this in mind, Vulcan County is seeking to improve our medical response capabilities by adding 7 AutoPulse Resuscitation Systems to our response tool box. The AutoPulse® Resuscitation System provides high quality automated CPR to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. It is easy to use and is battery-operated, the AutoPulse squeezes the patient’s entire chest to improve blood flow to the heart and brain. AutoPulse automatically sizes to the patient, and has shown improved outcomes in numerous clinical trials. Compared with manual CPR, AutoPulse has been shown to reduce interruptions in compressions during transport by more than 85%. (Statistics provided by ZOLL Medical Corp.

Vulcan County in partnership with the Vulcan County Health & Wellness Foundation are actively seeking community partners to assist in funding the 6 new AutoPulse Resuscitation Systems for the County Fire Departments. The Vulcan County Health & Wellness Foundation is able to provide tax receipts for your donation. For more information Contact: Gail Wark at 403.485.4001 or
