Our church has been awarded an AED from the Steven M. Gooter Foundation.
"The Steven M. Gootter Foundation is dedicated to saving lives by defeating sudden cardiac death through increased awareness, education and scientific research. We dedicateourselves to this mission in memory of Steven M. Gootter" https://stevenmgootterfoundation.org/about/
The automated external defibrillator (AED) is a computerized medical device. An AED checks a person's heart rhythm, recognizes whether a shock is required and administers a shock if needed. The AED uses voice prompts, lights and text messages to tell the rescuer the steps to take. AEDS are very accurate and easy to use. With a few minutes of training anyone can learn to operate an AED safely.
The church staff have all been trained in CPR and the use of the AED that we now have on campus. The AED is located in Goddard Hall, inside the front entrance, to the left above the fire extinguisher.
