Dr. White is part of Mayo’s Department of Emergency Medicine, the City of Rochester and Olmsted County’s Defibrillation Program, and is the Co-Medical Director of Mayo Clinic’s Medical Transport/Gold Cross ambulance service. Also speaking will be the County Board Chair and Rochester Police Officer Tom Kaase and Fillmore County Sheriff Daryl Jensen.

With the award of this grant, Fillmore County residents are on their way to having the life-saving power of AEDs within reach. The County has been awarded this opportunity through the Health Resources and Services Administration Division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The focus of this federal grant is to get AEDs in rural communities which normally have longer than average response times and therefore lose precious time getting this vital resource to patients. All Fillmore County cities and first responder organizations enthusiastically and unanimously joined in this collaborative effort. The project is planned for three years and will be completed in three phases contingent on available funding with a total value of over $171,000.
