At the end of last year’s season the Firefighters Aid Fund donated an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) to the market. The market board of directors, knowing that 3 to 4,000 people shop on any given Saturday; it would be a good idea to be prepared in case of someone having heart failure.
Class instructor Chris Cahan, of Cahan First Aid & CPR Training , said “it is always a good idea to have the market staff trained in case of emergencies. Chris also explained that King County has the highest survival rate in the country for cardiac arrest. One of the reasons is the public widely supports the county’s EMS/Medic One System. The survival rate is 62%, and is even higher (+80%) if a person is given CPR before the paramedics arrive on the scene.”
