OSHKOSH - Oshkosh is taking another step towards being a heart safe community.
Nine automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are being installed this week at various public locations around the city. That included one Wednesday morning at South Park.
The units are used to help those in cardiac arrest or experiencing a life-threatening irregular heartbeat.
"This definitely makes Oshkosh a safer place," said Oshkosh Fire Chief Timothy Franz in a release. "We know that having an AED nearby makes a difference between life and death."
The AEDs being installed are designed to be used by non-professional rescuers and provide audible instructions.
The locations that will have 24-hour public access to AEDs are:
- Menominee Park (Reetz Field concession stand)
- Spanbauer Field (at Sawyer Street and W. Sixth Avenue)
- Rainbow Park (shelter No. 1)
- 24th Avenue Boat Launch
- Fugleberg Boat Launch
- Red Arrow Park (concession stand)
- South Park (shelter No. 1)
- Opera House Square
- Leach Amphitheater (concession stands)
