Saturday, August 24th: LUCAS FOR LUCAS Golf Outing at Hartland Glen
07/31/2019 - From Patrick Hohl, Hamburg Township Supervisor:
At our June Public Safety Committee meeting we were honored to have a nine your old young man, Lucas Vetter, provide the Committee with a presentation of his live-saving program, Lucas for LUCAS.
“Lucas Vetter is a remarkable nine year old boy from Rose Township in Oakland County. While visiting the fire department in Howell, Michigan, Lucas learned that there is a device that can increase the survival rate of heart failure patients by 60% - it’s called the LUCAS. Lucas saw a need and acted upon it, he immediately started a campaign to raise money to buy a LUCAS for each fire truck in Howell Fire Department. In just six short months since he started raising money, Lucas was able to buy one LUCAS for Howell Area Fire Department! Lucas’ dream has grown; he plans to continue to raise money for as many Fire Departments in Michigan that are in need of these remarkable life saving devices.”
Lucas is working with our Fire Department to fund LUCAS devices for Hamburg Township. He will be presenting his amazing vision of helping others by raising funds to assist local Fire Departments with the acquisition of LUCAS devices at our August 6th Board Meeting.
