AEDs installed at Community First
Community First Credit Union recently purchased and installed 20 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) at its branch offices in Northeastern Wisconsin.
The measure to provide enhanced lifesaving capabilities in cardiac emergencies came on the suggestion of Mark Evers, a maintenance specialist for the credit union who also is a volunteer firefighter/first responder with the Greenville Fire Department.
According to the credit union, about 30 Community First employees underwent first responder training that included AED deployment. Training isn't required to use an AED.
Appleton-based Community First has a branch office in De Pere at 1700 Lawrence Drive.
