On Tuesday, September 14th, the Rockport Police Department was presented with 5 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) thanks to a generous grant awarded to HeartSaver by Spencer County Community Foundation. HeartSaver, a program of The Heart Hospital at Deaconess Gateway and Deaconess Foundation, is committed to raising funds and placing life-saving AEDs in our community. HeartSaver depends on gifts and grants from the community to place these devices.
