ELMSDALE: A partnership between two community organizations formed to honour loved ones gone too soon has led to an outdoor AED being installed in the heart of Elmsdale.

Outside Leno’s Stop Shop on Wednesday morning (April 17), approximately 15 people attended the installation of an outdoor cabinet and AED at the store located on Hwy 214 in Elmsdale (adjacent to the traffic lights with Hwy 2).

The AED will be housed in a heated, weather-proof SaveStation cabinet, and will be accessible to anyone who needs it 24/7.

It was made possible through a team effort by Suzanne Gilby from the Ritchie Gilby Memorial Society and Jeff and Angie Bannister of the Braeden Bannister Memorial Fund and the EHS AED Registry.
