Local groups learned how to use a life-saving tool they got through a donation from Lovelace Hospital. 

The heart hospital donated $10,000 to place defibrillators, or “AEDs,” in various organizations, including Joy Junction, Rio Rancho Presbyterian Church, and Petroglyph Little League. 

Thursday, the hospital trained those groups on how to use the devices if someone’s heart stops. 

The heart hospital collected donations from the community to pay for the AEDs.
