Defibs4DoorCounty receives matching grant

The Defibs4DoorCounty organization is looking to be there for you by addressing an important public safety need. Defibs4DoorCounty is aiming to increase the number of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) in key locations throughout the county to help save lives. The organization has received an anonymous matching donation grant of up to $75,000. Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht says that every minute that passes without early CPR or defibrillation decreases the chance of survival by 7-10%. Most cardiac arrests occur in public places, making AEDs accessible in public very important. Hecht also talked about where these defibrillators might get distributed first

 

 

For those that want in depth training with the defibrillators, information on that can be found on defibs4doorcounty.org, and donations can be made by mail, on the website, at any county fire station, or at Nicolet National Bank and North Shore Bank branches in Door County.
