Something good for all of us.. AED’s

AED picWhen an out-of-hospital cardiac event (heart attack) occurs, Sheriff’s vehicles are often the first responders to arrive.  Studies show that during cardiac arrest the chances of survival decrease 10% every 60 seconds-  getting immediate help is crucial. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and training are the best tools a deputy would have available responding to such an event. The Chelan County deputies are attempting to place an AED in every patrol vehicle-  an effort resoundingly endorsed by the emergency medical service providers of our area.  If you would like to contribute to this worth while effort please go to       COMMENTS
