TVVFD is working with Rural/Metro in submitting equipment grant requests specificly for Station 72 that would benefit our fire district members. The first grant request of $16,000 is for the Zoll AutoPulse System which generates consistent and uniterrupted chest compressions by machine to provide improved blood flow during cardiac arrest. This is an important capability for the emergency technicians who are servicing the aging population in the Tanque Verde Valley Fire District.
This grant is offered by the Firehouse Subs Restaurant Corporation of Jacksonville, Florida whose foundation’s mission is to improve life-saving capabilities of small emergency service entities. Firehouse Subs has four restaurants in the Phoenix area and is opening four in Tucson, the first opened in June 2012 at the Marana Marketplace, 3844 W. River Road, Suite 110.
