Connecting Islanders with AED Maintenance and Training
AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) are lifesaving devices that can deliver an electric charge in order to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm, increasing the survival rate of cardiac arrests by up to 70%.
In partnership with Salt Spring Fire/Rescue, Lady Minto Hospital Foundation has worked since 2012 to facilitate the installation and maintenance of AEDs on Salt Spring, with over 40 AEDs installed across the island to date.
Help save a life. Take an AED training and familiarize yourself with all AED locations so that you can retrieve a unit quickly when needed.
