Pinal Rural Fire Rescue Announces …

The "Borrow an AED Program", a part of the AEDPetitionNOW organization is being implemented by Pinal Rural Fire Rescue! A representative from Cardiac Science, John Rittenburg, will be donating a free AED and equipment to PRFR on May 2, 2012 at 1:00 P.M. The presentation will be held at PRFR Station 625 at 15062 Hwy 77 in Mammoth. We will be able to loan the AED out to community or school events so our youth and public will be protected in case of sudden cardiac arrest.

At the same time we will be formally establishing an Explorer Post at Pinal Rural Fire Rescue with a representative of the Boy Scouts of America Catalina Council. The Fire Service Exploring Program is for eligible youth ages 14 - 20 who are interested in Fire/EMS careers. This is an excellent program which will give youth positive goals and guidance. It's a very active program and will give young people something productive to do in rural areas.
