Last year eleven Minuteman employees were CPR and AED certified. This year we installed an automated external defibrillator (AED) as part of an ongoing effort to keep our employees and customers safe.
The AED has been installed in the waiting area, which is the most central and open area for quick accessibility. A second AED may be installed in the future.
Those certified last year will have a refresher course on: how to recognize and treat life-threatening emergencies, including cardiac arrest and choking for adult, child and infant victims, the warning signs of heart attack and stroke in adults, and breathing difficulties in children.
