Door County now has almost twice as many chances to help save the lives of people experiencing a cardiac episode because of the Door County Fire Chiefs Association's Defibs4DoorCounty fundraising campaign. The campaign, which started in February and ran through Labor Day, raised $79,898 and combined those funds with a $75,000 challenge grant from an anonymous donor for a total of nearly $155,000. That was enough to purchase 84 new automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) to distribute to government agencies and public places across the Peninsula. “The committed and compassionate people of Door County stepped up and helped make a difference through their generous donations,” Chris Hecht, Door County Fire Chiefs Association president and Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Fire Chief, said in a news release.
