STUTSMAN COUNTY, N.D. — Law enforcement in Jamestown and Stutsman County has new life-saving tools in case crews arrive on scene of a health emergency before the ambulance — automated external defibrillators.
Thanks to a Homeland Security grant of more than $20,000, the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Department, Jamestown Police Department, Jamestown Fire Department and Jamestown Regional Airport Firefighter Rescue are all now equipped with AEDs.
“A decision was made that we spend the entire grant on AEDs,” said Jerry Bergquist, Stutsman County emergency manager.
