Local S8 donates defibrillator

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.

Pictured, l. to r., are Local S8 officers Fort; Keith Clayton, secretary-treasurer; Rodney Shires, vice president; and Dan Bradley, recording secretary; with Tracey Wyatt, Ph.D., SIC Foundation director.
