Harrisburg Police Receive Automated External Defibrillator For Police Cruiser

The City of Harrisburg Bureau of Police has received one Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for a police cruiser to aid officers in responding to medical emergencies.

The donation came through the Fraternal Order of Police as part of a grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

AED’s are a device that measures heart rhythm and can send a shock to the heart to treat sudden cardiac arrest.

In 2005, the Firehouse Subs founders established the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation with the mission of providing funding, life-saving equipment, and educational opportunities to first-responders and public safety organizations. The non-profit 501 (c)(3), Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has given more than $24 million to hometown heroes in 46 states, Puerto Rico and Canada.

FOP National President Chuck Canterbury said that a $250,000 grant would help get 263 AED’s into the hands of police across the country.

Les Neri, President of the Pennsylvania State FOP, distributed 26 AED’s to police departments with the greatest need for this life-saving device across the state. Canterbury and Neri encourage individuals to learn more about the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation at and about the FOP at
