In 2013 the Richard G. Lugar Center Clark Co. AED Launchfor Rural Health was awarded the Rural Access to Emergency Devices (RAED) grant from the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Through this grant the Lugar Center partnered with several community organizations to form the Illiana RACER alliance in an effort to place automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in rural and outlying areas of west-central Indiana and east-central Illinois. In addition to placing these life-saving devices the group will also train community members in the use of these devices as well as cadiopulmonary resucitation (CPR).
