ALBION – The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office recently received $3,000 from Albion’s Walmart Supercenter with funding awarded through Walmart Foundation Community Grant.

The grant provided funding for the purchase of two automatic external defibrillators and necessary AED supplies for public access within the community. AED’s are portable electronic devices that automatically diagnose life-threatening cardiac-related problems and treat the ailing person through defibrillation to restore effective rhythm.

The wall mounted AED’s are located in the main hallway at the Orleans County Public Safety Building and the lobby at Orleans County Animal Shelter.

We thank the Walmart Foundation and Albion’s Walmart Supercenter for their generous donation to assist in the safety of our community. In recent years, the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office received funding from the Walmart Foundation Community Grant to defray the cost for K-9 Otto’s food, supplies and vet bills.
