SHERMAN, Tex. -- Grayson County commissioners are working to improve safety at some county buildings. Commissioners approved Monday morning the installation of four automatic, electronic defibrillators, or ‘AED’s for short.
Commissioner Johnny Waldrip says they have wanted to do this for several years now, but recently decided to make the change, especially since a lot of people come in out and out of the justice center and courthouse.
Commissioners say they plan to put two devices in each building.
"The defibrillators work very well. They’ve been proven in many different places, they're very easy to operate and if one person has a heart attack, and we can save their life, then it's well worth the money," Waldrip says.
Commissioners plan to work with the county health department and install the devices in the next month.
