Device is installed at business/community center
MEMBERS OF LOCAL S8 (Equality, Ill.), who work at the Willow Lake coal mine in Southeastern Illinois, donated an automated external defibrillator for use at a business and community center this past summer. The defibrillator, which generates an electric shock to restore a heart’s natural rhythm, is installed at the Southeastern Illinois College (SIC) Foundation building. The facility houses Local S8’s offices as well as other organizations and businesses. It also serves as a center for public functions.
“We saw donation of the defibrillator as one way to give back to the community,” said Local S8 President Greg Fort.
