    Last week, four Harford County Sheriff’s Deputies were the first to arrive when a man suffered a heart attack at the BMW dealership on Conowingo Road. The Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company put out a press release to let everyone know that because these deputies knew CPR and had an automated external defibrillator (AED) with them, they were able to restore the man’s pulse and breathing even before the paramedics and a fire engine arrived.

    The BAVFC urges local businesses and places of public access to train their staff in CPR and acquire AEDs so that they are always ready to help in an emergency.
