We are pleased to let you know that there is a new automated external defibrilator (AED) available at the Side Lake Rec Center.
The ZOLL AED unit is mounted in its white box on the wall near the hallway to the kitchen.
This device can save a life in a cardiac arrest situation. Simply remove the unit from the case and follow the directions. The AED will assess the patient for you, administer a shock if needed, and walk you through the steps of CPR. This can buy valuable time for a patient in an emergency while waiting for the first responders and paramedics to arrive.
A special thank you to those who donated at the Fire & EMS day in July 2014, and to the Side Lake Community Church for their generous donation!
