  • Little league coaches learn CPR...

    New equipment was recently introduced at LaRue County Parks and Recreation and it could help to save lives in the future.

    The park’s addition is an Automated External Defibrillator or AED. This $1,500 machine, which was donated by Nolin RECC, is used as an aid during CPR and can help to restart a heart.

    According to Jerry McBride, paramedic and instructor for the American Heart Association, AEDs save lives because they can detect when a heart enters a deadly rhythm and then reset the heart by providing a “jolt of electricity” to return it to normal.
