Fire Department upgrades heart machines

February 19, 2014

If needed, help is on the way. The Blackfoot fire station has upgraded its equipment to be able to identify if a patient is having a heart attack. [A heart attack is called a myocardial infarction (MI).]
The physio-control machine is a 12-lead program, said Blackfoot Fire Chief Kevin Gray. It gives paramedics 12 different views of the heart.
"This is state of art equipment," he said.
Each of the four physio-control machines owned by the fire department received upgrades. The cost was $8,000 per upgrade.
"We budgeted for the upgrades," said Gray.

But despite the trials and tribulations of the season the Panthers again won the 3A District 5 championship last week and will be returning to this week's 3A state basketball tournament to defend their title.
