Oconto Falls Fire Department Receives Grant

Oconto Falls Fire Department would like to thank the Bond Foundation of Oconto, for a grant our department received for the purchase of AED’s (automatic external defibrillators). Through this grant we were able to purchase an AED for our 2 Engines, Ladder truck and install one unit in our station. One of the areas Bond Foundation awards grants is for health. By awarding our department this grant for these AED’s, everywhere and everyone we respond to assist, including our own firefighters, will have a much better chance of survival if having a heart attack/cardiac arrest event. One of the leading causes of firefighters’ line of duty deaths is from cardiac arrest/heart attacks. By being awarded this grant and having these AED units closely available gives everyone a much better chance of survival.
Oconto Falls Fire Department can’t thank Bond Foundation enough for being awarded this grant for the health and safety of our firefighters and the community.
