New frontiers for new learning

December 5, 2013Posted by on
Across our school board we are working with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to install Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) in our schools.
AEDs enable more people to respond to a medical emergency that requires defibrillation. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is one of the leading causes of death in North America. In Canada, up to 40,000 people suffer SCA every year. A significant proportion of these cases occur in otherwise healthy, young individuals. SCA occurs when the electrical pathway that controls heart rhythm becomes disturbed and enters a chaotic electrical activity.
Before the AED is installed we need 10 individuals trained on how to use an AED. In addition to our school staff, this training is available to parents of our community who are interested. The training will occur in the evening hours and is a 3 hour time commitment.
If you are interested in receiving the training, or would like more information, please contact Mr. Collins or Ms Bongard 905-893-2829 ext 154/153
