The Committee for Richfield Township Public Safety was able to donate two Phillips AEDs (automated external defibrillator) to two St. Helen buildings. One AED was donated to Richfield Township for its hall and the other to Charlton Heston Academy for its gymnasium. The money used to purchase the AEDs came from the Richfield Township Depart­ment of Public Safety’s (RTDPS) Annual Pancake Breakfast. RTDPS has two certificate American Heart Association CPR/AED instructors within the department who have held classes for all RTDPS department members along with teachers and faculty at CHA. (Above) The CHA students from Ms. Aimee Whittaker’s classes are the first two classes to complete the CPR/AED training. Pictured (fornt row, from left) with the students are RTDPS EMT and CPR/AED Instructor Zach Miller, RTDPS EMS Chief Allen Sharrow, Committee for Richfield Township Public Safety Treasurer Renee Keppen and Whittaker. Being that AED and CPR trainings are important, five additional training sessions will be held at CHA throughout the school year. (Below, from left) Richfield Township Deputy Clerk Nancy Fisher, Clerk Pam Scott, Treasurer Kac­ey Lacey, Supervisor Jim VanWormer, Sharrow, RTDPS Police Chief Frank Anthony, RTDPS EMT Pearl Miller and RTDPS Firefighter Tim Steinhauer stand near the AED which is located near the main entrance of the Richfield Township Hall. Richfield Township Public Library has teamed up with RTDPS instructors to provide the community with an AED training night. The exact date and time of this training will be an­nounced at a later date, however, it will be held January, 2018.
