The City of Fountain and Ostrander, in partnership with Fillmore County AED Collaborative, is pleased to announce the addition of four Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) to our area. This addition will allow our communities to have life-saving capabilities for those suffering from a heart event.

The Fillmore County AED Collaborative is a partnership of the County offices as well as every city in the County. As a group, we were able to secure a competitive federal grant to add over 80 AED’s to the City and County locations, with four to be added to the City of Fountain & City of Ostrander.

This year, the AED received will be installed in the following location, Fountain Fire Station, Fountain squad car, Ostrander Community Center and Ostrander squad car.

For more information about AEDs, or how to prevent heart disease, please contact Kristina Kohn, Human Resource Officer, at the Fillmore County Coordinator’s Office in the Fillmore County Courthouse in Preston, Minn.
