Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Acquires New Life-Saving Equipment...

Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver announced on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, that every full-time uniformed deputy will now be equipped with an Automated External Defibrillators or AED's in their car.  He thanked the Cherokee County Commission for assistance with the purchase of 17 AED units.   Sheriff Shaver stated deputies will receive training on how to operate the devices, which are used on people experiencing cardiac arrest.  The units are fully automatic and self-adjusting to the individual in crisis.  AED's have been proven to save lives, and the addition has given his office the means to better serve the community.

According to Shaver, officers are usually the first to arrive on the scene and being equipped with these new devices will allow deputies to potentially save lives. Shaver added, “Like us, our emergency medical units cannot be everywhere all the time, so this project will put more live-saving equipment in our county.  The value of every human life is very important to us.  We're here for public safety, and being equipped with AEDs is one more step in providing our deputies with tools to help save lives."
