AMI Silica Donates Life-Saving AED Device to North Branch Humbird Rod & Gun Club

Humbird, WI — In a significant boost to local emergency preparedness, AMI Silica Operations Manager Nate Kitzrow made a notable contribution to the North Branch Humbird Rod & Gun Club. On behalf of AMI Silica, Kitzrow donated a brand new automated external defibrillator (AED) device to the club, underscoring the company’s commitment to community health and safety.

The donation, presented during a recent visit to the club, is a crucial addition to the facility. An AED can provide immediate and potentially life-saving assistance to individuals experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. By delivering a shock to the heart, an AED can restore a normal rhythm, which is critical during the first few minutes following a cardiac event.”   The presence of an AED on-site will greatly enhance our ability to respond effectively to medical emergencies,” said a Dennis Hardwick, President of the North Branch Humbird Rod & Gun Club. “It could mean the difference between life and death for someone in need of immediate assistance. This donation will not only benefit our club members but also the wider community, as our facility hosts many events open to the public.”

The North Branch Humbird Rod & Gun Club is a hub for various activities, drawing members and visitors from across the region. With the addition of the AED, the club is now better equipped to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone who comes through its doors. Kitzrow emphasized AMI Silica’s dedication to supporting local communities. “We are proud to contribute to the health and safety of the North Branch Humbird Rod & Gun Club and its visitors. Having an AED accessible can make a critical difference in an emergency, and we hope it brings peace of mind to everyone who uses this facility.”

The donation aligns with broader efforts to improve emergency response capabilities in community centers and public venues, where timely medical intervention can save lives. As the club continues to host a variety of public events, the AED will serve as a vital resource, ensuring that both members and guests have access to essential emergency care.

 

This generous contribution from AMI Silica highlights the importance of corporate responsibility and community engagement, setting a commendable example for other businesses to follow.
