External defibrillators at every school: The Lucky Hearts Campaign has donated 32 automated external defibrillators to CMS in honor of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. CMS will use the donation to place a defibrillator at each elementary school that does not currently have one. Each unit costs approximately $1,500. Along with the donation, medic staff will train CMS personnel on how to use the devise.
