Local paramedics and PAD Champions, Emma Jameson and Sandy Lewis along with Alex Brosh presented an AED to Sue Delatour, Paul Huycke and Herb Castle, venue staff of the Riverside Centre on Nov. 1.

Delatour, Huycke and Castle  were given instruction on the device and taught the ‘chain of survival.’ Call 911, do CPR and use the AED.

They were provided training with the aid of the Mini Anne® CPR and AED Training program.

Jameson who was leading the instruction session told the three trainees that they were “all doing really well—fantastic actually,” she said.

Jameson, Lewis and Brosh were quick to answer any questions from the trainees as well as to offer suggestions and aid in proper techniques.

In September of this year, the Princeton Curling Club received an AED. During the off-season, the Curling Club AED will be on stand-by at the Princeton Golf Course.
