The lifesaving tools are used in conjunction with C-P-R to help a person having a heart attack.
The defibrillators have been installed in the commission chambers on the third floor of the Luna County Courthouse… at the Starmax Entertainment Complex… and at the Deming Senior Center.
A fourth unit has been given to the Luna County Sheriff’s Department patrol division to relay from shift to shift… and three
additional units are pending registration through the state and will be assigned to the Mimbres Valley Learning Center, the Florida Mountain Volunteer Fire Department and the Savoy Volunteer Fire Department.
The grant to purchase the defibrillators was awarded to the Luna County Emergency Services Division… and director Mark Jasso
thanked Deming Fire Chief Edgar Davalos for his support in getting the program going.
The units were purchased from Cardiac Science… and information about the units is available at www.cardiacscience.com.
