Rotary Provides Funding to Edina Fire Department
The foundation of the Rotary Club of Edina recently awarded a grant of $3,000 to Edina Fire Department.
The Edina Fire Department used the grant to purchase an EleGARD, a device that is part of paramedics’ bundle to care to help increase positive outcomes after sudden cardiac arrest by decreasing intracranial pressure while increasing cerebral and coronary perfusion. This results in fewer neurological issues in survivors. With the Edina Rotary Foundation donation, the Edina Fire Department now has an EleGARD on each of its ambulances. Click READ MORE for additional details.
Edina Rotarians "Save a Life" Feature Story
Past President, Josh Sprague and Susan Stiles were featured in the August 4 SunCurrent story. In part, an 8-year-old girl likely would have lost her life had it not been for two Edina Rotarians who stepped in to help. Saida, who lives in a remote village of Cobán, Guatemala, developed a large, protruding cyst on her face that had begun affecting her sight and ability to breathe. Josh and Susan decided they had to intervene and get Saida and her family the life-saving medical help they needed. The full story can be read by click HERE.
