New AED location

Dr. Troy Van Pelt holds the automated external defibrillator (AED) he recently added to his practice in East Quincy. He also had all of his staff trained in CPR and AED use. In the setting of cardiac arrest, bystander CPR and AED use improve chance of survival by 400 percent. There are now 54 AEDs installed from Belden and Bucks Lake to Greenhorn Ranch; 33 of those have public access. Photo submitted
