RES Receives AED from Richmond Rescue! #resvt #cesuvt #vted

RES Receives AED from Richmond Rescue!
AED Unit, Julie Crenshaw (RES Nurse) and Michael Berry (RES Principal)

A wonderful gift to the RES community was received this month from Richmond Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

An AED is a device that is used in case of cardiac arrest to assist in delivering effective CPR (resuscitation) and early defibrillation (electric shock) if indicated.

Defibrillation within three minutes of sudden cardiac arrest increases the chances of survival to 70 percent.

This lifesaving equipment is located in a glass cabinet in the RES lobby as part of our emergency response plan.

We extend our sincere thanks to Lee Jones and all the Richmond Rescue staff whose work makes our community safer and for this generous gift to keep us heartsafe!
