Residents of Kearny will be better protected after the presentation of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to the Kearny Police Department from the Copper Basin Health Volunteers this week.

The AED will be carried in the on-duty patrolman’s car. “Realizing the police are usually the first on the scene for a medical call, the device will be a real plus for the community,” said Rose Bradford, CAHV president. She added that the patrolmen will all be trained to use the defibrillator.

The group has now purchased and donated five of these life saving devices for the Copper Basin area. The volunteers operate the Hand Me Up Shop located on Tilbury Dr. in Kearny. And through generous donations of clothing, toys, appliances, furniture and more from the community does numerous other deeds in the area with the monies raised in their little thrift shop.

Over the years that the shop has been in operation, the group has been able to give scholarships to students studying in the healthcare field. These scholarships are renewable as long as the student stays in school. Along with the scholarships CAHV has also helped two local para-medics complete their educations, pays half of the rent on the ambulance quarters in Kearny, pays all major repairs for the Kearny Clinic including a recently purchased air conditioning unit and donates $200 to both the Family First for diapers and to the local food bank each month.

Merchandise in the shop is clean and in good repair and is more than reasonably priced, Special bag sales are offered on a regular basis and new donations are always welcome.

Vicki started her career in the journalism field while attending Ray High School in Kearny with an excellent teacher who took her by the hand and guided her. She worked on the school newspaper and as a senior was a co-editor. Her dream was to go on to college to study journalism and eventually to travel the world reporting the news. This dream was interrupted by life circumstances. She stayed in Kearny and went to work for the Copper Basin News in 1964 as a typesetter. Her editor was Ira Q. Toler and he also was a good teacher. After marrying and having children, her desires to again work in the newspaper field surfaced. She responded to an ad for a position in advertising for the Copper Basin News which included selling, lay-out and design. She was hired on the spot. The business has greatly changed with technology and the introduction of desktop publishing. She was fortunate enough to be a part of it. She has now worked for Copper Area News Publishers on and off for over 30 years, starting when John Seater was the publisher. She has held many positions over the years, but is most proud to be named a reporter. She loves to write and is so grateful for being given that chance.
