Ambulance Fundraiser at 5 Guys

by Christopher O'Brien

Customers at Five Guys Flipping Pies will be doing more than eating a delicious meal Friday night. Owner Bill Acousti says he will donate 10% of all take-out or eat-in orders to Wolcott Volunteer Ambulance Association’s efforts to train townspeople in CPR.

Wolcott was designated as a “Heart Safe” community several years ago. The title requires a certain number of townspeople to be trained in CPR and also make life-saving Defibrilators (known as AED’s) at public places in town.

Currently all public buildings, including the five elementary schools, the library and golf course have AED’s available should a patron collapse. They can be used by any trained user and have instructions on the unit.
