FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – The Three Rivers Ambulance Authority (TRAA) received a $10,000 check Wednesday morning for some new technology in local ambulances.

The money will be used to install technology in the TRAA ambulances that will be used to transmit heart readings directly to the Parkview Emergency Department and the Parkview Heart Institute while the patient is enroute to the hospital.

The money comes from the Parkview Heart Institute and Fort Wayne Cardiology leaders.
