More than a dozen AED systems will be available to San Diego police officers in the field thanks to a grant from a local philanthropic organization.
Las Patronas donated $20,000 for the purchase of 15 Automated External Defibrillators (AEDS) to be placed in the trunks of field sergeant patrol cars.
San Diego Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Project Heartbeat and San Diego Police Department Operational Support Unit worked together to secure the grant.
Las Patronas distributes funds raised at its annual Jewel Ball. The organization’s 67th annual event will be held August 3, 2013, at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.
