LUDINGTON — Spectrum Health Foundation Ludington Hospital recently donated three automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) to the Mason County Courthouse. The AEDs were purchased for a total of $4,500 from the hospital foundation’s department of outreach, according to Kaley Petersen, foundation and community services director. Petersen said she was approached about the purchase from Sheriff Kim Cole after the foundation had purchased AEDs for some area schools.

“This is another layer of protection we want to offer to our citizens who visit the courthouse and the staff who works here,” Sheriff Cole said. “It has been statistically proven that AEDs can save lives. When a person is in cardiac arrest, minutes count.”

The hospital will provide courthouse staff with training of the AEDs which will be located on all three floors of the courthouse.
