The Hopewell Valley Lacrosse League, with the cooperation of the J. Stewart Husid Fund, has donated two automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) and heating cabinets to the Hopewell Township Recreation Department. The medical devices have been installed at the Twin Pines turf field and the Independence Park comfort building. In an emergency, the devices can analyze the heart’s rhythm and deliver an electrical shock, know as defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish and effective rhythm. In addition to the cost of the medical devices, the generous support from the J. Stewart Husid Fund paid for 30 youth coaches representing five organizations to be certified in CPR/AED by the Pennington Rescue Squad last fall. Additional classes will be set up to train additional coaches and parents throughout the community.
