Don Foxe, owner of Beach City Health and Fitness, holds an automated external defibrillator the gym keeps on hand to resuscitate heart attack victims. The Town of Hilton Head Island Fire & Rescue Division wants to create an online registry to catalogue all of the AEDs on the island. That information will become part of the division's computer-assisted dispatch so when someone suffers a heart attack, dispatchers will be able to direct emergency callers to the nearest defibrillator. The registry, just recently launched, is a result of the division's Heart Safe Community award, which requires it to continually improve heart attack care.
