Lucas Device: Backus Fire Department and First Responders Chief Jason Smith requested American Rescue Plan Act Grant funds to purchase a LUCAS device for the Ponto Lake Township station.  Cass Co approved the request at the Match 2022 meeting.  The LUCAS device will help responders perform CPR which can be physically exhausting and will allow fewer people to attend the patient freeing personal to perform other duties.  The device has been delivered.
