In a “total revamp” of its equipment, Pittsburgh is slated to invest $3.1 million in purchasing new automatic defibrillators for first responder vehicles. “I’d like the AEDs to be as common as Narcan out in the streets,” said Wendell Hissrich, Pittsburgh director of public safety. The new devices will replace ones that are outdated or reaching the end of their battery life.
