Babbé is proud to have initiated a joint fund raising project to procure and install an external automated defibrillator in Lower Pollet. Liz Van de Velde, HR manager at Babbé, was inspired to start the fundraising initiative after attending defibrillator training from the Cardiac Action Group. During the training, she discovered that the nearest defibrillator was quite a distance from Babbé’s office, and so the idea of raising money to purchase one of the devices for the Lower Pollet area was developed. Funds were raised through donations from Babbé and a group of local businesses in the area. The defibrillator has been installed and tested, and will be maintained regularly to insure the device is in working order ready for use by the community.
