BCHHC Foundation

AED Donation


A grant provided by the BCH Foundation has allowed the Gage County Sheriff's Office to purchase another AED (automated external defibrillator).  Sheriff Millard "Gus" Gustafson contacted the Foundation in late 2013 and explained the importance of having another unit.  "I only have two for the patrol division and a third one in the corrections facility," said Sheriff Gustafson.  "An additional unit would allow us to have one in each patrol unit per shift 24/7."


The budget is extremely tight for the Sheriff's Office and finding the funds to purchase this important life saving equipment was difficult this year.  "We are extremely pleased to be able to assist Gage County in this manner," noted Rich Hovendick, Foundation President.  "We are committed to finding ways to benefit the community and the hospital."
