Breezy Point donates AEDs to Let’s Go Fishing chapter

The city of Breezy Point recently donated two portable Automated External Defibrillator units to the Brainerd Lakes Area Chapter of Let’s Go Fishing for emergency use on their 28-foot Crestliner pontoon.

The AEDs were presented to Let’s Go Fishing volunteers by Breezy Point Police Chief Kevin Merschman, between morning and afternoon fishing trips departing from Lum Park on Rice Lake in Brainerd.

During 2011, Let’s Go Fishing will take about 1,200 Brainerd area seniors, veterans and kids fishing for free on Rice, Bay and Gull Lakes, with possible expansion to additional waters in 2012.
