Life-saving Help for First Responders

MOOSIC -- First responders in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre received some life-giving gifts Wednesday morning.

Geisinger Community Medical Center, Pennsylvania Ambulance, and Trans-Med Ambulance donated 40 automated external defibrillators (AED) to the city's fire and police departments.

The portable AEDs, which cost $1,500 each, can be used to treat heart attack victims.

After training, officers and emergency services expect the defibrillators to be ready for use within the next week.
