April 13th, City Council Meeting
Motion to Adopt Resolution Accepting Donated AEDs from the Cory Joseph Wilson Memorial

Requesting adoption of a resolution accepting the donation of six automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department from the Corey Joseph Wilson Memorial, Inc. 

An AED is used when a person is experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. An AED can check the person’s heart rhythm and determine if the individual needs an electric shock to restore a normal rhythm.  Cory Joseph Wilson, a Savannah native, died in 2013 due to a cardiac arrhythmia while in class at Georgia Southern University. There was no AED nearby at the time. 

The donated AEDs will be available for use in each SCMPD precinct.  Each AED is valued at approximately $2,000.



Financial Impact
Value of donation is estimated at $12,000.
