Addition of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) to Township Facilities

Orders have been placed to add one LifePak AED to the lobby of the Scott Township municipal building and one to the Swimming Pool/Community Room. AED’s have a proven history of making a difference in life saving efforts. Special thanks to State Representative Anita Kulik and County Councilman Patrick Catena. This from the American Red Cross:

“The American Red Cross supports the position that improved training and access to AEDs could save 50,000 lives each year. The Red Cross believes that all Americans should be within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it.

Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Over 350,000 people will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year. It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere and at any age. An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background.”

The Tree Lighting was a cold but great night as we had guest singers and carols by the Commissioners. Plenty of families were in attendance despite the cold and when Santa arrived, there were a lot of smiling faces from small children giving him their wishlist for the holidays!
