The Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department Society has undertaken an initiative to install Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in local community facilities. Recently, the BVFD Society donated and installed AEDs at the Community Hall, Legion Hut and Senior’s Center. After calling 911, these AEDs can be used by the public in the event of a cardiac emergency. AEDs are simple-to-use devices that really do save lives!

This project  has been made possible with the generous support of donors through fundraising and grant applications. We are pleased to receive a donation from the Regional EMS Foundation for two AEDs – thank you! We are also very grateful for the support of the Bezanson Ag Society, West Smoky Legion #244, and the Bezanson Senior’s Center for allowing us to place the AEDs within their facilities.

If you are interested in supporting this project, please contact us. Together, we are a heart-safe community!
