Tifton -- Some South Georgia first responders can do their jobs easier thanks to help from Tift Regional Medical Center's foundation.

The foundation donated more than $50,000 worth of equipment to EMTs in Berrien, Turner, and Irwin counties.

The money was used to buy three defibrillators to help first responders better treat patients before they're admitted to the hospital.

The foundation was able to make the donation thanks to some of you who contributed to an annual fundraiser.  

"Every year we have a Hearts and Diamonds Gala in February. It's our annual fundraiser and the proceeds from that benefit the Heart Safe Community. In the past, we donated the automated external defibrillators, the AEDs, this year is the first year donating the 12-leads," says Maranda Houston.

This week is National Hospital Week and Tift Regional has several activities going on to give back to their health care workers.
