Rotary donates defibrillators

By Patrick Fisher

The New Prague Rotary Club recently donated two defibrillators as part of a program to place the medical devices around New Prague.

The machines, which can help heart attack victims, will be located at public places as part of the Public Access Defibrillator Program. One will be installed at the New Prague Golf Club and the other will be at New Prague City Hall. According to emergency medical personnel involved in the program, there is a need for 28 defibrillators around New Prague. The New Prague Ambulance Service, Queen of Peace Hospital and North Memorial Medical Center are involved in the program. Dr. Mike Wilcox, Medical Director of the New Prague Ambulance Service and Queen of Peace Emergency Medical Services, is the medical director of the program.

A portion of the funds for the devices was raised from proceeds at the bingo tent Rotary sponsored during New Prague’s Dozinky festival. Each device costs just under $2,000.

We feel strongly about the project and proud to support it and we urge others to get involved
