Community Coalition Provides AEDs to 11 Area Groups

A coalition of area organizations has provided 11 area entities with life saving Automated External Defibrillator (AED) devices.

In a cardiac arrest event every second can make the difference between life and death and in our wide spread rural areas those seconds can become minutes while awaiting emergency medical assistance. The AEDs being available can save lives in those situations.

A community collaboration and support from Mosiac Life Care, Buchanan County (MO) EMS, Missouri Primary Care Association, Altec, Commerce Bank, Kawasaki, Mosiac Foundation, Lifeline Foods and Eagle Communications, funds were raised to purchase eleven AED units to distribute around northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas.

Those entities receiving an AED from this collaboration include the Andrew County Ambulance District (MO), Atchison Holt Ambulance District (MO), Buchanan County Fire Chiefs Association (MO), Caldwell County Ambulance District (MO), Clinton County Fire Chiefs Association (MO), Clinton DeKalb Ambulance District (MO), Chillicothe Fire EMS (MO), Doniphan County Ambulance District #1 (KS), Elwood, Kansas, Fire Department (KS), Grand River Ambulance District (MO), and Worth County Ambulance District (MO).
