The Women's Club of Westminster recently presented the Carroll County Agriculture Center with two Welch Allyn brand Automated External Defibrillators (AED).
The AEDs are used to resuscitate victims who experience a cardiac arrest or other heart problems. The AEDs provide voice commands to the rescuer on the proper use of the machine.
The Women's Club raised $3,000 from a basket bingo in April and received several donations to pay for the AEDs, which were given in time for this week's fair, said Etta Ray Griffin, a club member.
"These AEDs provide the equipment needed for any trained rescuer who may be at an event," said Caroline Babylon, Ag Center treasurer.
