The Libertyville police department recently was able to replace six Automatic External Defibrillators (AED's) that were more than eight years old and add two more units to the fleet as a result of a $10,000 donation. The HeartStart Defibrillators are similar to those already deployed elsewhere in the village. These newer models are also equipped to handle emergencies involving children. "This will enable us to put an AED in each of our patrol cars deployed on the street, including supervisory vehicles, plus replace those strategically placed in the police station," Police Chief Clint Herdegen said. The donor wished to remain anonymous.
