Chapter 913 Donates to Local Fire Department

Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913 donated $4,750 to the Branson (Missouri) Fire Department (BFD) last month, helping replace the unit’s automatic electric defibrillators (AEDs). Each fire engine carries an AED, and the department provides AED and CPR classes free of charge.

“In recent years we’ve determined that about 10 years is he life we’d like to have for our front-line AEDs,” BFD’s Nate Jones told KY3-TV in Springfield. “So this donation from the [Vietnam Veterans of America] helped us upgrade our equipment so we could provide, or continue to provide, better customer service to our community.”
