On Thursday, August 10th, the Villa Park Fire Department received a grant of $11,894 worth of life-saving equipment from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The grant funded four video laryngoscopes that provide an efficient line of sight during intubation, improving chances of survival for patients suffering from respiratory and cardiac trauma.
“We would like to sincerely thank Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation for choosing us as a recipient for a grant which will allow us to outfit all four of Villa Park Fire Department’s Advanced Life Support rigs with the most up to date intubation equipment,” said Villa Park Fire Department Firefighter Kelli Krupa. "We strive to provide the community we serve with the best treatment possible, and this advanced technology will aid our paramedics in doing so. Thanks to the Foundation, we are able to provide the best care and the greatest impact to our patients.”
