United Donates AED to Edward Little
As part of a continued effort to ensure community safety and preparedness, United Ambulance has recently donated a new Medtronic LIFEPAK Express Defibrillator to Edward Little High School. The Automated External Defibrillator or AED is a state of the art device that should be accessed quickly in the event of a cardiac arrest. The use of the device in conjunction with adequate CPR may assist in the resuscitation of an arrest victim.
The new AED is one of the most user friendly devices on the market. In order for the device to be accessed easily it is housed in a public display case that was also donated by United. This case is mounted on the stage area of Edward Little’s gymnasium and can be easily accessed by Edward Little Staff or community members visiting the facility.
With any new piece of equipment, appropriate training is required. The Edward Little AED donation was all inclusive with United covering all training and maintenance costs associated with the new AED. “It is part of our commitment to ensuring the safety of the students, staff, and visitors of Edward Little High School”, replied Paul Gosselin, United’s Executive Director.
