Lewiston Fire Department Commends United Ambulance

LEWISTON:  The Lewiston Fire Department recently commended United Ambulance for its $1,100 donation towards the Department's Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Upgrade Initiative.  Automated external defibrillators are designed to restore a normal heartbeat following a life-threatening rhythm disturbance.

In a commendation letter to United, Fire Chief LeClair stated, "United Ambulance has led the way within the community in support of AED deployment and the positive impact that these devices have had.  The citizens of Lewiston are fortunate to have a company as dedicated and giving as United Ambulance."

Leclair went on to explain how beneficial the donation was to the upgrade project, "United's generous donation allowed us to complete our upgrade process within this current budget year.  Our department needed to upgrade a total of five AEDs, and towards that goal, we upgraded two in our last budget and another two within this budget. The $1,100 donation enabled us to upgrade the fifth unit."
