Allen firefighters used extensive training and a unique piece of equipment to bring a man back to life.

Allen City Council approved the purchase of five chest compression devices in early 2017. The units perform up to 100 chest compressions per minute, allowing firefighters and paramedics to focus on administering CPR or other emergency medical needs.

WFAA tells the incredible story of the Allen Fire crew who used this device and the special reunion that followed. Watch it now.
