Does your school have a defibrillator (an AED)?
Sudden Cardiac Arrests (SCA) do happen in schools!
Many of you may have heard of the recent report in the news of an eight year old child going into SCA at school. Luckily the school staff did an amazing job including the use of the school defibrillator to administer shocks, and today the child is recovering well from all reports! So SCAs do happen at schools, in playgrounds and on sporting fields for all ages!
If your school or sporting club does not have an AED, or maybe it's time to upgrade the old outdated model you have, take a look at what is on offer from the Defibshop.
