First responder vehicles throughout Posey County will be equipped with a total of 26 AEDs (automated external defibrillators) thanks to a $25,000 grant.

It will be awarded through the Posey County Community Foundation from the Smithville-Posey Rural Health Grant Initiative and with additional contributions from Deaconess HeartSaver.

A special presentation of the AEDs and training for first responders will take place on Tuesday, July 18 at 5:00 p.m. at the Deaconess Gateway Hospital Conference Center.
