This past week the parents of Corporal Trevor O’Keefe have donated a MIKEY defibrillator in his memory to the Burnt Cove-Bauline-St. Micheal’s Community Centre.
Corporal Trevor O’Keefe was recognized for his community-focused volunteer work. Members of the Witless Bay Volunteer Fire Department, representatives from the Burnt Cove-Bauline-St. Michael’s Community Centre and residents of the Southern Shore were on hand along with O’Keefe’s parents, Pierre and Biddy O’Keefe to present the MIKEY defibrillator.
His parents selected the community centre to receive the defibrillator, to keep the equipment close to where he grew up.
The MIKEY defibrillator is part of an initiative in support of fallen first responders by Canada’s 911 Ride, Atlantic Region.
