The McDonough County Sheriff’s Office recently received two Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) as part of a grant from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation. The AEDs are being distributed in the state through the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) State Lodge.

“Our thanks go out to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation and the FOP for creating this partnership that will have a direct positive impact on public safety,” said McDonough County FOP Lodge 280 President Adam Cremer. “Simply put, having AEDs on hand will save lives in McDonough County.”
