McKimmie presents AED funds to St. John de LaSalle


Wed, Mar 27th 2024 04:25 pm

The Niagara County Legislature has assisted in protecting health and safety for the community of St. John de LaSalle, a part of the Niagara Falls Roman Catholic Family of Parishes.

During a recent parish council meeting, there was a discussion about the benefits in being prepared for a heart-related emergency. Members were aware of the efforts taken to save the life of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin. The parish's Holy Name men's club was assigned to secure an AED. As a first step, it reached out to Niagara County Legislator Chris McKimmie, who said there may be funds available through community partnership funding. With help from environmental health and safety professional Walt Garrow, who also worked with a local safety supply company to define the instrument specifications, McKimmie was able to write a resolution, which he successfully presented to the County Legislature.
