A meeting has been set in New Fairfield tonight for residents to approve a funding request to replace the Lifepak unit in the medic car owned by the Town.  The Board of Selectmen is looking for the $27,900 come from Hindman/Bernhard Trust.  The current unit has been in use for over 12 years and beginning to fail.  New Fairfield Volunteer Fire Company officials say at some point the old unit will no longer properly interface with the Danbury Hospital system.  While the unit can be used on any patient, it is primarily used on elderly patients who have a greater frequency of heart and pulmonary issues.  The meeting is at 7:15pm in the Community Room.
