The Hayner Public Library District would like to thank the Simmons Employee Foundation for their generous support in funding the purchase of three automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for the library facilities.
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are medical devices that analyze the heart’s rhythm and can, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock which helps the heart reestablish an effective rhythm. According to the American Red Cross, sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy-to-operate tool for someone with no medical background.
Thank you, Simmons Employee Foundation, for your generous contribution to our library and your continued support of the community.
