ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa - A Siouxland sheriff's office is now better equipped to save lives in an emergency. 

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office say that they have eight units that are now equipped with Automated External Defibrillators, or AEDs. 

Partners with the Sheriff's office said that having AEDs would increase law enforcement's ability to save lives when they come across an emergency that requires it. 

The type of the AED purchased is the Physio Control Life-Pac CR plus. They say that they cost a total of $13,560. 

With help from the Health Services of Lyon County, the AEDs were purchased through the Emergency Preparedness Grant Program.
