Lecompton city and township fire rescue personnel were recognized Monday by representatives of an insurance company for purchasing a cardiac defibrillator machine.

The rescue squad received a $2,000 grant from Prudential Insurance Co. through its Helping Hearts Program to cover half the cost of the machine.

Members of the company recognized the squad at the fire station on Monday.

Defibrillators administer jolts of electricity to "reset" the heart's natural rhythm.
