    Four older and outdated automatic external defibrillators in town have been replaced with new Philips HeartStart OnSite AEDs — one at the municipal center, one at the police headquarters, and two with the Parks & Recreation Department for use at the town pool at Treadwell Park and the other at Eichler’s Cove marina.

  • CPR, AED, First Aid Classes

    Two members of Newtown Christian Church recently became certified CPR instructors, and have decided to share their knowledge with the community.
