The Virginia Beach Rescue Squad Foundation is pleased to announce its 2017 Grant recipients, totaling a distribution of just over $100,000, as well as its 2017 Langhorne & Pulley Memorial Scholarships:
Thanks to grants totaling over $53,000 from Firehouse Subs Strawbridge, Princess Anne Courthouse Volunteer Rescue Squad now has LUCAS devices on all four of its ambulances. The LUCAS is a portable device that provides automated, consistent, uninterrupted chest compressions during CPR, and they’re valued at up to $15,000 each.
