CPR course at the Legion was well attended... however

Recommended Posts

It came to our attention that we could use a defibrillator as the success rate between manual compressions and using a defibrillator is the difference between 20% and 80%.  Therefore we are raising funds to purchase one for the Legion.  Cost is approximately $US 1,200.

Our first fundraiser will be at the Memorial Day festivities at the Legion as part of the 50/50 draw - all purchases and donations will be extremely helpful.

 Keep posted for further fundraiser such as bake sales, etc.

AEDs – The only effective intervention for sudden cardiac arrest

..."In fact, one occurs every 12 minutes in Canada and, with each passing minute before AED application, the probability of survival declines by 7-10%. Time is of the essence in these situations and using an AED is the only effective intervention. "

I am actually surprised that with the demographics we have in the area we don't have a push to ensure that these machines are located in public places that people congregate.

There seems to be no shortage of other worthwhile charities and fundraisers for the area and this should also be one!
