Defibs4DoorCounty hits $75,000 fundraising goal

Thanks to your generosity and the help of an anonymous donor, the Door County Fire Chief's Association will add 84 new automatic external defibrillators throughout the county. Through its Defibs4DoorCounty campaign, the organization raised $79,898, which was more than enough to trigger the $75,000 challenge grant. Door County Fire Chiefs Association President Chris Hecht thanked the community for responding to the effort, which was launched in February. He said earlier this year how important the program was to the health and safety of all of those who live, work, and play in the county.


Most of the units will be for government agencies, including emergency personnel,  but some were earmarked for high-traffic locations at schools, churches, museums, and more. The units purchased through the program proved vital when back in August, a first responder was able to use it on an individual who lost consciousness near Weborg Dock in the Town of Liberty Grove.  Over 356,000 people experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, according to Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation.
