Donation from RCBH
Time is of the essence when a medical emergency happens. Some can become fatal before EMS arrives. For this reason, the City of Somerton Police Department would like to thank Amanda Aguirre and Regional Center for Border Health, Inc. for their generous donation of three Zoll AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFRIBELATOR (AED) packages. The AEDs, valued at nearly $1,700.00 each, will enable anyone to provide care for cardiac emergencies or a wide range of life-threatening conditions.
Regional Center for Border Health staff went out of the way and installed the device boxes throughout the Public Safety Building. The AEDs were placed in common areas, that are accessible to the public, police, and fire personnel.
We are thankful for the partnership we continue to have and for the support we have received from Regional Center for Border Health.
