New State of the Art Equipment Helping Big Lake Fire Department

BIG LAKE, TX (KWES)

New state of the art equipment is helping the Big Lake Fire Department save lives.

With support from county commissioners, they now have a new highly advanced EKG machine.

It helps the paramedics get a better look at the patient’s heart and it even gives doctors a head start before the patient has even left the scene.

That's not all; they also have a new CPR Compresser.

We're told they really needed this equipment since they are often called to emergency situations over an hour away.
