Learn CPR & AED

The EHS AED Registry Program suggests getting trained in full by a certified agency (e.g. Heart & Stroke, St. John Ambulance, Canadian Red Cross, Lifesaving Society, Canadian Ski Patrol). In the meantime or as a refresher, please view these quick and informative videos. The last two videos are courtesy of Canadian Heart & Stroke.

Paramedics Laura and Ian show you how to perform layperson/bystander CPR and use an AED.

Hands-only CPR is being performed here and is suitable for adults.
