Rural Metro to donate AED to county

The county’s ambulance service is donating a defibrillator to Knox County.

From a release:

On Wednesday, Feb. 10, Rural/Metro will donate a new Automated External Defibrillator to the Knox County Veteran Services office, located at 1000 North Central Street.

Commissioner Anders helped recognize the need and worked with Rural/Metro to secure the device that could be used to save a life in the event of a medical emergency at the Knox Central building, which houses the Veteran Services office, as well Knox County Purchasing and other departments’ and agencies’ offices.

Rural/Metro staff will be on hand to demonstrate the use of the AED and to answer any questions. All County Commissioners have been invited.

Knox County Veteran Services staff serve thousands of veterans each year, many of whom are elderly or suffering from various medical conditions. More information about Knox County’s Veteran Services office is online at http://www.knoxcounty.org/veterans or available by phone at 865-215-5645.
