The Laurel School District Receives a Life-Saving Donation from Mississippi Power

A potential life-saving gift arrived at the Laurel School District as they received a generous donation from Mississippi Power. The gift, an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), has the potential to make a life-changing impact.

The generous donation from Mississippi Power means the Laurel School District now has two additional AEDs. This life-saving equipment will be strategically placed within the school district, ensuring rapid access during a cardiac emergency. This invaluable contribution will benefit not only the students but also the dedicated educators and staff who work tirelessly to create a safe and nurturing environment for learning.

The Laurel School District wishes to thank Mississippi Power for its support and generosity. Your support and generosity remind us of the incredible power of community partnerships.

An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a critical medical device used to treat cardiac arrest, a life-threatening condition where the heart suddenly stops beating properly. Time is of the essence during a cardiac arrest, and having access to an AED can be the difference between life and death. These portable devices are designed for ease of use and provide clear, step-by-step instructions to bystanders, making it possible for anyone, even those without medical training, to administer crucial first aid.
