SIDNEY — A Sidney organization has purchased a new Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) for any “what if” scenarios.

The Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada Unit 302 becomes the latest location of the potentially life-saving device. A busy, active place, the ANAVETS unit felt it was important to have an AED on site, not only to serve their clients but the general public as well.

Signs have been posted outside the building on Fourth Street to alert the public that an AED is available for public use in case of an emergency.

ANAVETS was able to purchase the AED through their ongoing fundraisers and with the help of the B.C. Lotteries Commission and community supporters.
