Help the County Breathe Easier
The Los Angeles County Fire Department Foundation has made it its mission to provide each paramedic unit with a mechanical CPR device by December 2023.
“We are trying to build a first-of-its-kind comprehensive cardiac arrest system in LA County, and it cannot be done without mechanical CPR devices,” says Medical Director Clayton Kazan. Mechanical CPR devices are extra hands for paramedics to help them care for our sickest patients. While the program is in its infancy, there are already four confirmed survivors. “Our team is so proud that these four people were returned to their lives, their families, and their communities, completely intact, because the Foundation’s donors provided the resources for us to pilot our vision.
“Government budgets are always based on paying for what has been established with no room for vision or innovation. My team is always saying, ‘If only we had some room in the budget, we could do so much more.’ That is why we are so grateful to the Fire Foundation and its generous donors,” Dr. Kazan adds.
