United Donates AED to the Colisee

 

In efforts to better serve spectators and employees at the Colisee in Lewiston, United Ambulance Service has donated a new Medtronic LifePak CR Plus Defibrillator . The AED or Automated External Defibrillator is a great addition to the Colisee as it can be accessed quickly during the unlikely event of a cardiac arrest.

The new AED is one of the most user friendly devices on the market today. On January 15, 2005, 15 Colisee Staff Members were trained and certified in American Heart Association (AHA) Heart Saver CPR, First Aid, and AED usage. This training was provided by United Paramedics; Rielly Bryant and Scott Latulippe.

In addition, United donated a new First Aid kit to be housed in the Colisee with the AED. Though United is within a few minutes away during the event of a medical or trauma emergency, both of these new items will heighten the safety for all who work and play at the City of Lewiston's Colisee.
