Buckeye Fire awarded grant to purchase AEDs
Buckeye Fire Medical Rescue Dept. was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $11,702 from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation to purchase seven new Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, anytime. In the event of an emergency, six of these lifesaving devices will be strategically placed in high traffic community services buildings throughout the city. The final device will be mobile, traveling to different locations on a regular basis.
As Buckeye continues to grow, this coordinated effort between Buckeye Fire Dept. and the Community Services Dept. will add an additional level of service and increased safety to the residents throughout the City of Buckeye.
Being able to purchase all seven devices at once will also keep a consistency throughout the city that will make training and response by Buckeye Fire Dept. more efficient.
