GIVE NCW AED Project

Posted By: Sheriff's Office on November 28, 2016

The Chelan County Sheriff's Office is requesting funding through community support with a GIVE NCW project, in order to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs). These AEDs will be placed in every patrol vehicle. Patrol vehicles often arrive minutes before fire and EMS units in rural areas - with an AED in their vehicle, they can save a life. Studies show that during cardiac arrest, chances of survival decreases by 10% every 60 seconds - getting immediate help is crucial.

The Chelan County Sheriff Deputies AED Program has received overwhelming support from the Emergency Medical Service agencies and organizations that represent this public safety partnership.
