The Town of Bracebridge, with the help of a local family, announced the installation of a year-round SaveStation AED defibrillator at Annie Williams Memorial Park earlier this week. The installation is a result of a generous donation by the Schofield Family.

The Town says the SaveStation AED unit is housed in an outdoor cabinet and is located on the wall of the Amphitheatre at Annie Williams Memorial Park. It provides real-time feedback on the AED device; a temperature controlled cabinet, as well as alarm and photo control upon cabinet opening. The AED is available to anyone, at any time, to be used in a cardiac arrest emergency.

Sudden Cardiac Arrests happen in Canada on average every 13 minutes. The good news is that there is over 75% survival rate when an AED is used within the first 10 minutes.

For this reason, public-access AED’s that everyone can use, can make the difference in saving a life.
