OSHKOSH - The city of Oshkosh recently installed AEDs in 12 locations throughout the city.
Automatic External Defibrillators can help save the life of someone who is experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. They send an electric shock to the heart, to jump-start it to a normal rhythm.
According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention , sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, affecting 340,000 people each year.
The installation of the AEDs comes just in time for a busy tourism and recreation season in Oshkosh.
Here is a list of where the AEDs are located:
Menominee Park (Reetz Field concession stand)
Spanbauer Field (at Sawyer St. and W. Sixth Avenue)
Rainbow Park (shelter No. 1)
24th Avenue Boat Launch
Fugleberg Boat Launch
Red Arrow Park (concession stand)
