Bill Edson, Chief Operating Officer, of Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Association, recently presented two AED's to the Town of Middlebury. AED's, or Automated External Defibrillators, are portable electronic devices that automatically diagnose life threatening cardiac problems and treat them through an application of electrical therapy which allows the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. Dustin Hunt, of the Middlebury Recreation Department, coordinated this effort and receives a unit on behalf of the town. Bill Finger, Town Manager, shown on the right had one unit mounted in the hallway outside of the town gymnasium at the town offices. The second unit will be utilized at Recreation Park and other venues as needed.
