Get trained in AEDs

My heartfelt (pun intended) thanks to councilor Kenny Podmore for his efforts to procure Automated External Defibrillators

My heartfelt (pun intended) thanks to councilor Kenny Podmore for his efforts to procure Automated External Defibrillators (AED) for the town. As was stated in the statistical information at the end of your article, the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest can be doubled with the rapid application of B.C. Hydro and the availability of an AED close by will hopefully contribute to increased survival rates.

With the prices of AEDs falling, I would look to some of the larger merchants in Sidney to also obtain one and to train their staff in the very simple technique of their use.
