MINEOLA, N.Y. – Ten people have been saved since Defibtech Lifeline Automated Chest Compression Device were put in all ambulances about a month ago, according to WABC-TV.

“The tool, like any tool we give out to law enforcement, to our police medics or anywhere here in the county, is so they can do the other functions they need to do and make us better at what we do,” said Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder. “If we’re better at it, then that means we protect the people of Nassau County.”
