Stevens Point Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department receives AED
For the City Times
STEVENS POINT – The Stevens Point Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department was selected to receive an automatic external defibrillator (AED) from the St. Michael’s Foundation’s Cardiac Arrest Survival Team (CAST) Fund.
The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department will use this new AED at Goerke Community Stadium, for fall, spring and summer athletic events, and will use it at the Iverson Winter Sports area during the winter season.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to have such a tremendous community partner in the St. Michael’s Foundation in Stevens Point,” Director of the Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department, Dan Kremer, said. “We believe having this AED in Goerke and Iverson Parks for our organized activities and athletics will further protect our valued visitors who frequent these facilities and better prepare our team to respond in case of an emergency.
“St. Michael’s Foundation has funded 15 AED’s throughout the community. Together, we work to improve the number of cardiac arrest survivors,” stated Margo Willard, from the St. Michael’s Foundation.
