WEST MILTON — The Milton-Union Public Library is now even more prepared for emergencies.
Thanks to the generosity of the Miami County Foundation, the library has acquired a Zoll AED-Plus to use in a health crisis. The Automated External Defibrillator unit is an interactive device that informs the user verbally on what steps to take to resuscitate unconscious individuals.
Five library staff members also have current CPR certification for more effective, confident use of the device. Although the grant was given in December, the library waited to order the AED until sufficient number of staff members could be trained in CPR.
The AED device is now mounted on the wall behind the circulation desk for easy access in an emergency.
The staff and board of the Milton-Union Public Library are grateful to the Miami County Foundation for their concern for Miami County citizens.
Milton-Union Public Library is located at 560 S. Main St., West Milton and is open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
