Watchung Fire Department Receives Grant to Purchase AEDs

Watchung Fire Department Purchases AEDs

The Watchung Fire Department recently received and placed into service 5 AEDs purchased thanks to a generous grant from The John Taylor Babbitt Foundation. Four of the units are now located on apparatus and one will be placed in headquarters to allow members to provide rapid defibrillation if faced with a patient in sudden cardiac arrest. All Watchung firefighters are trained to the “Healthcare Provider” level of CPR in addition to the many other certifications they hold to ensure that Watchung is a safer place.
