Adopt-a-Soldier celebrates AED partners

Adopt-a-Soldier Door County is wanting you to feel safer at public events and other Door County partners have helped make that happen. As part of a fundraiser to equip the Door County Sheriff’s Reserves with items for an emergency kiosk at public events, Adopt-a-Soldier has purchased three AEDs. When not with the Reserves, the AED’s are in the Sheriff’s Department squad cars. Adopt-a-Soldier took the time to thank some of their contributors earlier this month. 


Adopt-a-Soldier founder Nancy Hutchinson says over $11,000 was raised in total for the AEDs and first aid kits and Nicolet Bank pitched in $2800 of that total. Hutchinson says the AEDs cost about $2200, and one of them was purchased by Lars Johnson. Hutchinson adds that some of the funding will go to other material associated with the AED’s. 



Hutchinson says they are waiting on the first aid kits. She looks forward to the kiosks being available at Fall Fest in Sister Bay and the Egg Harbor Pumpkin Patch, but hopes they don’t have to be used.
