Oklahoma Emergency Medical Services have received federal money to purchase defibrillators for rural Oklahoma for the third year in a row.
Health officials say its vital to treat heart attack patients within 5 minutes and defibrillators could help save as many as half of those who suffer a sudden cardiac arrest.
207 defibrillators were given to rural areas in Oklahoma last year.
