Sherbrooke trains 102 ‘Heroes’
LastThursday afternoon at the Sherbrooke conference centre, 102 people received free “Heroes in 30” training in the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED). Given by certified instructors with the health agency, the thirty minute training teaches people how to recognize the signs of complete obstruction of the airways and cardiac arrest, and how to keep someone alive until help arrives, usually with the use of an AED.
In the coming year, Sherbrooke will install 15 AEDs at the following locations: Arena Philippe Bergeron, Arena Ivan Dugre, Centre Julien Ducharme, Centre recreatif Rock Forest, Arena Eugene Lalonde, Palais des sports Leopold Drolet (2), chalet de Mont Bellevue, Sherbrooke conference centre, Sherbrooke Town Hall, Jacques Cartier community centre, Jacques Cartier park, Granada theatre and Immaculate Conception Church.
