County's defibrillators due for replacement
Warren County Senior Center director Connie Smith stands next to a defibrillator at the facility. It was provided by the county through a program called Public Access to Defibrillation approximately 10 years ago. It is among several the county must now replace.
The county could be in for a shock as its automated external defibrillators need to be replaced. At approximately $1,300 each, the county has 10 to 12 of them.According to a letter from Cardiac Science, the makers of the devices, the county’s existing ones are outdated and the company will no longer offer support for them including replacement pads and batteries. “We got a letter from Cardiac Science,” said EMS director Brian Jennings to members of the county’s Safety Committee.
