The White County School system donated 12 AEDs (Automated External Defibrillator) to White County Sheriff’s Office. Last year, the school district purchased new AEDs under the Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity Grant.
“We were fortunate enough to receive a grant to allow us to purchase brand-new equipment that is consistent across our school district,” Coordinated School Health Supervisor Marcie Kinnard said. “The 12 donated AEDs are in working condition, so we are proud to know that they can be put to good use in our county.”
With the new AEDs fully implemented, the district was able to provide the fully operational AEDs to the sheriff’s officer earlier in November. Mike Kerr, director of White County Emergency Medical Service, is coordinating the placement of the AEDs into deputy patrol cars. According to Capt. Nate Theiss, the deputies are already AED trained, but a refresher course will be offered during their upcoming in-service.
