[ARCHIVED] Port Arthur Fire Introduces New Lifesaving Equipment

AutoPulse Equipment at Fire Station 3  Port Acres

The Port Arthur Fire Department has received lifesaving equipment for Fire Station #3 in the Port Acres area. 

According to Fire Chief Benson, 

"The AutoPulse devices added to Port Arthur Fire Department have been beneficial in managing patients in cardiac arrest. Implementing the use of the AutoPulse increases survivability but must be done in a timely manner.  Port Arthur Fire Department has added an additional AutoPulse to Engine 3 in the Port Acres area. This will reduce time for implementation in the event of cardiac arrest incident in Port Acres and support an increase in lives saved. Engines 1, 6 and 3 currently are equipped with an AutoPulse. The commitment for quality services is expanding with new equipment and higher levels of training.  The Port Acres Community is an area of focus for increasing safety as well."
