The tiny village of Dorset is now armed with an Automated External Defibrillator in case someone goes into sudden cardiac arrest just off the Heartland Trail.


The AED was donated by Bruce Wizik, who has ties to the area through his sister, Sally Wizik-Wills, owner of Sister Wolf Books. He wanted to make sure the AED was in place by Memorial Day weekend when the area starts to boom with tourists.
