Be AED and CPR ready

February 24, 2016. St. John Ambulance is pleased to announce our partnership with ZOLL to provide Automated External Defibrillators to Albertans. St. John Ambulance will have AEDs for purchase over the counter at all seven of it’s provincial locations. Individuals and organizations that purchase an AED will receive a $60 gift certificate towards a CPR Level A class with their AED purchase. This gift certificate may also be applied towards a registration in a CPR*, EFA, SFA* or Enhanced First Aid class.

Statistics show that for every 1 minute delay in defibrillation, the survival rate of a cardiac arrest victim decreases by 7% to 10%**. In addition the use of an AED with CPR before the arrival of Emergency Medical Services can increase the chance of survival by up to 75%. These statistics show that increased access to Automated External Defibrillators will help prolong life in the event of cardiac emergencies where an AED would make a lifesaving difference.

As Canada’s standard for excellence in First Aid and CPR services, St. John Ambulance plays an integral role in our society. Building on a 900-year tradition, St. John Ambulance offers innovative First Aid programs and products, ensuring Canadians receive the best service, quality, and expertise.

ZOLL has been developing high quality Automated External Defibrillators since 1980. With products for defibrillation and monitoring, circulation and CPR feedback, data management, fluid resuscitation, and therapeutic temperature management, ZOLL provides a comprehensive set of technologies that help clinicians, EMS and fire professionals, and lay rescuers treat victims in need of resuscitation and acute critical care.
