In an innovative move to make public access automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) accessible at recreational areas in Talbot County- the Talbot Paramedic Foundation, Team Trace, and Talbot County Department of Emergency Services are partnering to install heated, ventilated, and fully monitored SaveStations containing AEDs at North Easton Park. Plans are to install outdoor defibrillator SaveStations at four locations within the park making an AED available within approximately three minutes in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
SaveStation installations are made possible through the grateful assistance of our partners: Easton Utilities, Town of Easton Public Works, Town of Easton Parks and Recreation Department, Easton Parks Advisory Board, and Gunther’s Electric, Inc.
SaveStation AED cabinets house life-saving AEDs that are clearly marked for public use. The technology built into the SaveStation allows for 24/7 monitoring of the AED to ensure it is always ‘ready for rescue’ and will take a picture when the cabinet is opened. This cabinet also keeps the AED warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Talbot County has been a leader in community access AED and CPR outreach. This SaveStation project is a first for any Maryland county and one of the most ambitious in the country. Plans are being developed to install additional Save Stations at all recreational facilities and in communities throughout Talbot County….
