On August 16, the Port of Corpus Christi continued its support of first responders in the Coastal Bend by donating nearly $32,000 to the Tri-County EMS – which serves Nueces, San Patricio and Aransas counties – to purchase a cardiac monitoring device for one of the organization’s ambulances. The new machine will allow Tri-County EMS to utilize every ambulance in its fleet for emergency cardiac situations.
