    Heart defibrillators coming to Menasha

    MENASHA — Installation of 13 automated external defibrillators in eight Menasha Joint School District schools plus Calder Stadium is under way.

    Menasha Public Health Director Sue Nett said having the devices in the schools will offer a better chance to save lives when cardiac events occur. “Our target date for them actually going up in buildings is Feb. 1, the start of National Heart month,” she said.

    “We need to give our kids and visitors a chance,” said retired Menasha police lieutenant Sue Wisneski, who has volunteered to help raise the $22,000 cost.

    Tax-deductible donations can be made to the Menasha Education Endowment Fund, Inc., P.O. Box 360, Menasha, Wis., 54952, with a note referring to the AED fund.
