As with anywhere else where people live and work, schools across Saskatchewan are increasingly equipped with AEDs, and our hope is that one day every school in the province will have one. We at AED Advantage enjoy working with many school boards to help maintain and manage the AEDs in the schools and broader communities.
The below story highlights the need to have these devices in our schools, and the amazing work a family has done to protect their children. Thank you to the Regina Leader-Post for covering this!
“The device is invaluable,” Sheldon said. “It’s extremely simple to use. Certainly I would recommend anybody have the training for CPR, but even in CPR training, there is the AED training. It’s a very quick thing to learn because these devices are completely automated. In my opinion, they’re idiot proof.” (Excerpt from story)
