Mended Hearts donates AED to Sheriff’s Department

Mended Hearts donates AED to Sheriff’s DepartmentThe Cookeville Mended Hearts Chapter 127 has expanded its services by presenting Automated External Defibrillators (AED), a life saving device and mannequins, a unit used to teach CPR to schools in Cumberland, Fentress, DeKalb, White, Putnam, Jackson, Pickett, Overton, Clay and Van Buren Counties. Each county will be teaching students how to perform CPR and how to operate an AED.
There have been 82 AED presented to churches and schools in this area and Mended Hearts recently gave Celina Police Department, Clay, White and Van Buren Sheriff Departments a unit each and Mended hearts has now added the Pickett County Sheriff's Department to that list. Our motto is "It Is Great To Be Alive and To Help Others." The Cookeville Chapter 127 of Mended Hearts Inc. is a volunteer support group for people who has been diagnosed with heart disease. If someone is having by-pass surgery at Cookeville Regional Medical Center, one of the Mended Hearts visitors will be with family as a support group to explain what is and will be happening that day and days to come.
