Loganville city hall receives defibrillator

Loganville officials recently accepted a portable AED machine from Eastside Medical Center. An automated external defibrillator is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock to the heart. The city plans to train different staff members on the proper us of the device. However, one of the big advantages to the AED is even people without a medical background are able to use the machine in an emergency.

“Eastside Medical Center is proud to support the City of Loganville and local first responders in their efforts to create and sustain a safe and healthy community,” Eastside Medical Center CEO Trent Lind said. “We were more than happy to equip Loganville’s City Hall with a medical device that has the potential to save the life of a community member should they experience sudden cardiac arrest on site.”
