The Merrionette Park Fire Department has received a $50,577.41 grant from the Blue Island Healthcare Foundation. This grant will be used to purchase two cardiac monitors which will allow our firefighters to perform 12 lead EKG's in the field. This will allow the doctor at the hospital to review the strip and possibly send the patient directly to the cardiac cath lab to perform life saving interventions. We would like to especially thank Dr. Kurt Erickson and Jeff Cullen from Metrosouth Medical Center for making this opportunity possible.
