Several of the Red River County Fire Departments recently accepted new Automatic External Defibrillators, which were donated to them by the Red River Hospital Board to use in their communities.
Pictured include members of the Avery VFD, Bagwell VFD, Bogata VFD, Boxelder VFD & Rosalie VFD. Not pictured recipients are Annona VFD & Clarksville VFD.
Also pictured is Clifton Brown with LifeNet EMS. He gave each department updated training on how easily an AED is used even for a non-medically trained individual.
The AED automatically explains step-by-step instructions on operating procedures. The Fire Departments thanked the Hospital Board for the generous donation.
