Zimmerman/Livonia Get Automatic External Defib from Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Don Sabinske, Sabinske & Associates Inc. 539MN

One Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) has been donated to the Zimmerman/Livonia Fire District by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) Mdewakanton LIFE Program.
The SMSC has donated 733 AEDs since the program began in 2004 and facilitated the low cost purchase of an additional 20 units. The Mdewakanton LIFE Program provides defibrillators to organizations including law enforcement programs, charitable groups, and schools.
At least 16 lives have been saved by law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel using defibrillators donated by the Mdewakanton LIFE Program, according to the SMSC.

This is great news for our community.  We have experienced an increase in population, and this will make everyone feel safer.  Our fire and police are very pleased with the donation.

Our Native American communities here do they same thing, as well as acquiring the naming rights for stadiums and concert venues to the tune of millions of dollars. They sponsor hospitals, fire departments, schools, and so much more. Of course, they acquire hundreds of millions of dollars from gam(b)ling at their casinos, so it's only natural that they want to take care of their audience.

Don, it amazing the difference in survival rates for areas that have this equipment vs. those that don't. One saved my father's life a few years ago.

Don,

This is excellent news for your community. The last buyers (now living in TX) I had were from Minnesota. I'll be sure to pass along the good news. They will be happy to hear about this.
