Park District to Recognize DuPage Medical Group for contribution of AEDs in Sports Complexes
Thanks to a generous donation from DuPage Medical Group, the Naperville Park District is installing Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) units at Knoch Park and at Frontier Sports Complex. This brings the total number of AEDs to five that will be available for use in the Park District’s larger parks. The City of Naperville’s Fire Department and the Naperville Park District collaborated to install the first three units at Nike Sports Complex and Commissioners Park in 2014.
The Naperville Park District and the Naperville Fire Department will recognize DuPage Medical Group at a brief ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, October 9 at the central pavilion at Frontier Sports Complex, located at 3380 Cedar Glade Dr. The community is invited to attend.
The new wall-mounted units house AEDs securely, are easily recognizable and include a call button to connect a user directly to a Public Safety Answering Point. If the dispatcher determines that the user is in need of the AED, they can release the door remotely from the dispatch center, while simultaneously dispatching Fire, EMS, and Police to the scene.
