Fire Fighters to Get New Defibs

Dozens of new life-saving devices are on their way to a local fire department. 

Amarillo City Commissioners approved the purchase of twenty-three new automated external defibrillators for the Amarillo Fire Department.

The AED's will replace existing older units and will be carried on their emergency response vehicles.

The device can jumpstart someone's heart.

Of the older AED's, fifteen will still be used in other city departments.
