Portable Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) available for local events

June 11, 2015 - Kawartha Lakes Paramedic Service would like to remind the public that we are happy to loan out portable Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for sanctioned City of Kawartha Lakes events throughout the summer months and beyond.

Heart and Stroke Foundation research has proven that CPR in conjunction with rapid AED application improves sudden cardiac arrest survival by 50%. If you witness a sudden cardiac arrest, start CPR immediately, simultaneously call 911 and apply an AED if it is available. Citizen efforts should not stop until care is transferred to the responding paramedics. 

To inquire about borrowing an AED, please contact the Paramedic Service office at 705-878-1284 or cminaker@city.kawarthalakes.on.ca
