Prairie’s Edge Receives AED Unit


Prairie’s Edge Humane Society was selected by the Defeat of Jesse James Days Committee of Northfield to be the recipient of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which will be on loan to the PEHS shelter for use at our facility and our various community events throughout the year.  The unit will be returned to the DJJD Committee each September during the Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration and then returned again to the PEHS shelter to be housed throughout the rest of the year.  PEHS staff members have completed an American Heart Association CPR AED Training course.  Prairie’s Edge Humane Society was one of four local non-profits to receive an AED from the Defeat of Jesse James Days Committee.  Thank you to the Defeat of Jesse James Days Committee for this opportunity.  We hope we will never have to use the device but are grateful to have the unit in the event that we would ever be in need of it for anyone attending our events.  Pictured with the AED unit and storage cabinet at the PEHS shelter facility are Sandy Vesledahl, PEHS staff member and T.J. Heinricy, Defeat of Jesse James Days Board Member.  Area non-profits working together!
