“We just want to make sure that we have the tools necessary to do what needs to be done in the case of an emergency,” said Principal, Brian Tice.

“This school stepped up and said we have to make a difference, we got to make a change, and they’re going to put it in their whole district to stop these tragedies from happening,” said LifeVac founder and CEO, Arthur Lih.

The Early Childhood Center will use 14 of the LifeVac units and share the rest with the other pre-k and elementary schools across the county.

Tice says that they are grateful for the donation and hope that they can get the word out about how helpful the LifeVac can be.
