Red­mond Re­gional makes AED do­na­tions to city of Rock­mart

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Sean Wil­liams swilliams1­[email protected]­

Red­mond Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter has been keep­ing lo­cals healthy for years, but by do­nat­ing a de­fib­ril­la­tor to the city of Rock­mart, the group is now mak­ing sure lives are be­ing saved out­side their doors.

The move came dur­ing the city’s July 9 meet­ing where of­fi­cials from the hos­pi­tal were present to do­nate the equip­ment.

A de­fib­ril­la­tor can be used to de­liver a dose of elec­tric cur­rent to a per­son’s heart, and with it, those suf­fer­ing se­ri­ous, life-threat­en­ing car­diac ail­ments are much more likely to sur­vive.

The coun­cil nat­u­rally gave their thanks and men­tioned the equip­ment would be put to good use be­fore mov­ing onto other items.

The city also did some giv­ing of its own dur­ing the meet­ing when they awarded and rec­og­nized the Rock­mart Lit­tle League Soft­ball team for their re­cent cham­pi­onship at the 8U state play­offs.

The play­ers were of­fered a trophy and cer­tifi­cates while a packed room of fam­ily and friends cheered them on.

The 8U team went un­de­feated in the GRPA state tour­na­ment, and they earned their spot in the fi­nals by beat­ing Gor­don County 10-0. It’s been a solid sea­son for lo­cal sports in gen­eral, and Rock­mart’s new and im­proved Le­gion Field has no doubt made for bet­ter prac­tice.

While they held a pa­rade to cel­e­brate the field ear­lier in March, the team is now cel­e­brat­ing their cham­pi­onship. The girls were def­i­nitely the su­per­stars of the night, but the coaches were also rec­og­nized for their hard work in train­ing the team.

The coun­cil ad­journed af­ter re­ports, but those in­ter­ested in the fu­ture af­fairs of the city coun­cil can city hall on the sec­ond Tuesday of each month be­gin­ning at 7 p.m.

Red­mond Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter EMTs brought along an AED to show off to the Rock­mart City Coun­cil as they made a do­na­tion to the city in re­cent days.

The Rock­mart 8 and un­der soft­ball team were honored by the Rock­mart City Coun­cil for their big win for 2019.
