A Defibrillator Makes Monte Vista’s Sargent Elementary Safer

  • Local Champion: Sargent School District No. Re-33J
  • Date Funded: March 19, 2024
  • Grant Amount: $2,110

Defibrillators are important lifesaving tools for those experiencing cardiac arrest, but a state inspection last year revealed that Sargent Elementary School did not have the number of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) the school needed to keep students, staff, and visitors safe. Sargent School District purchased four AEDs last year, but it didn’t have the money in its budget to purchase another. In need of help, the district nurse reached out to LOR. LOR’s funding will help the district purchase a new AED for the elementary school gym, ensuring all students and staff have easy access to the simple but important lifesaving tool.
