Recently Sgt. Ted Tiska and
Deputy Sheriff Todd VanKuren presented Sheriff Thomas Mills with
four (4) Zoll AEDPLUS defibrillators. Routinely, members of the
Delaware County Deputy Sheriffs Police Benevolent Association
solicit donations from our citizenry for worthwhile endeavors. The
response is gratifying and the circle is completed when the benefits
are returned to the community at large.
Sheriff Mills noted, “We
haven’t purchased new defibrillators since we conducted the last
fund drive, in January, 2000. Later, many were replaced by a
donation from the Public Health Department. This donation comes at
an opportune time – when they are needed most to replace some of our
most outdated models.” It should be noted that AED’s can also be
used to benefit children because AED manufacturers provide a
pediatric cable for them which is capable of reducing the amount of
energy the AED delivers to a child under eight years of age.
