Donations used to purchase new AEDs for Northshore Fire

Wednesday, December 31, 2014

As a result of gracious donations received in 2014, the Northshore Fire Department recently purchased four life-saving Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) units for use in the department’s non-emergency vehicles.

The department’s non-emergency vehicles are normally driven by personnel who have emergency medical training. These new AED units provide these individuals with an invaluable tool that can save precious treatment time and improve the odds of survival for victims of sudden cardiac arrest.

Monies donated to the Northshore Fire Department are used to purchase items that would not necessarily be included in the regular budget, but would be of great value to the community at large. These new AED units are similar to those that you may have seen in schools, malls and other public places.

For more information about public AEDs or to sign up for a CPR class visit the Northshore Fire website and look under the “Quick Links” section.
