Rockford Rec Receives AED Equip.

With the increasing number of athletes and visitors that take part in Rockford Recreation Association and Shane's Park activties each year, and the growing concern for heart health and safety, it was important for our programs and to our board members to assure that adequate procautions are in place to reduce or prevent potentially fatal or severe life-changing incidents from taking place - where in an emergency every second counts.
