Livingston Police get life-saving equipment

Aed Device

Every police officer in Livingston is now equipped with lifesaving equipment for anyone who suffers a heart attack.

It’s all thanks to Christian Valley Baptist Church, which purchased the AED devices and donated them to Livingston PD.

The automated external defibrillator is a medical device designed to analyze the heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock to those with an irregular heartbeat, hopefully restoring the heart rhythm to normal.

In a Facebook post, LPD called the devices “crucial to the chain of survival during a cardiac emergency.”
