CALDWELL, Idaho — When a person suffers a heart attack, every second counts.
The sooner helps arrives, the better the chances of the person surviving.
That's why the West Valley Medical Center donated a two-thousand dollar portable defibrillator (also known as an AED) Wednesday to the Caldwell Municipal Pool.
Experts say making the devices available at public locations is critical to providing life-saving medical help.
Paramedics were on hand today providing training on how to use the AED.
