Most commonly, community health workers of all levels can be trained to use the AED, but trainees could also include volunteers in the community who are interested, willing to learn and willing to participate in emergency response. If medical expertise is not available in the community, communication links can be established among communities that use AEDs, and to larger Emergency Medical Systems that use AEDs frequently and can provide advice.



Adult CPR, child CPR, infant CPR, 2-man CPR, specialized CPR classes, etc. There is many different levels of CPR you can learn. Whatever your needs, we can accommodate it.



Non-Dedicated Stand-by _ a volunteer, no-cost, stand-by where the ambulance will attend your event and stay as long as they can, but if an emergency call is received, then the ambulance may have to leave, but will return when finished the call.
