Wis. man launches AED campaign

MILWAUKEE — When a call for emergency medical service comes into the city, it's typically a police officer — and not a paramedic — who arrives first on the scene.

And if there's an automated external defibrillator in each squad car, officers can become first responders and can quickly get the life-saving process started in cases of sudden cardiac arrest. With that in mind, former alderman Richard Bachman is launching an effort to raise about $14,000 to place an AED — a portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart — in each of 12 police squad cars.
