There are now four new AEDs in Delta parks.
This week the City of Delta, in a partnership with St. John Ambulance, have installed publicly accessible, life-saving Automated External Defibrillator (AED) stands at four of Delta’s parks. The stands include an AED unit and a first aid kit for bystanders to use when someone is experiencing cardiac arrest.
The locations of the new AED stands are:
North Delta Community Park – 11311 84th Ave.
John Oliver Park – 11590 Ladner Trunk Road
Holly Park – 4681 62nd St.
Fred Gingell Park – 253 English Bluff Road
“Considering most cardiac arrests happen away from hospitals, these stands provide essential tools to the public in the event someone experiences a major medical emergency,” said the City of Delta in a news release.
According to the city, the installation of the AED units is part of St. John Ambulance’s Start Me Up BC program, which aims to provide public access to lifesaving materials like AEDs and first aid supplies.
The City of Delta and St. John Ambulance is providing free, optional training at
North Delta Community Park on Friday, March 24 at noon. The training will last approximately 10 minutes and no registration is required.
