The City of Dearborn continues its commitment to providing top-quality life-saving services to its residents.
Under the leadership of Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr., with the support of the Dearborn City Council, the Dearborn Fire Department is being provided with multiple new pieces of life-saving equipment.
The following were approved at the City Council meeting on Dec. 8:
• Seven Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
• Six LIFEPAK-15 Heart Monitors
• 10 Chest Compression Machines
“The Fire Department is committed to ensuring our residents’ safety and protection,” said Dearborn Fire Chief Joseph Murray. “To that end, we are always finding ways to secure the highest quality and most up-to-date equipment possible.”
The new equipment was funded in part by FEMA’s “Assistance to Firefighters Grant,” a competitive grant which assists firefighters and first responders in obtaining critical resources necessary for protecting the public. The grant was a regional effort in conjunction with 14 other communities, with Dearborn Heights acting as the lead agency.
