The Tallassee Fire Department purchased 7 automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) for use in the Tallassee community. Tallassee Fire Department received 2 of these devices to be placed on our Fire trucks. Tallassee Police Department received 1 for use by patrol officers and the remaining 4 were placed 1 each for use at the Tallassee Senior
Center, Tallassee Community Library, Tallassee Recreation Center, and Tallassee City Hall. All city personnel will receive CPR and AED training once the pandemic allows our staff to safely do so. These devices are portable and will be used at any community event and are stored in secure cabinets and available in public access areas of our city. These devices have increased public access to early defibrillation in the case of cardiac events. Our entire City and visitors will benefit from this grant award.
