There are 28 new defibrillators to help save lives in Southwest Georgia.
Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital donated them to organizations throughout the region as part of their Community Visions program.
The Dougherty County School System received 11 defibrillators to be dispersed throughout the district.
"It gives us a second life; it gives us a second jolt to do something right, which is save a life for a child or a teacher or a bus driver, for an administrator if you will. So we are all here and we are proud of what this relationship has done," said Dougherty County School System Superintendent, Dr. Joshua Murfree.
Defibrillators were also given to the City of Albany, the civic center, Lee County Fire Department and the Turner Job Corps.
