Lifesaving defibrillator purchased by the NCISL
A lifesaving automated external defibrillator (AED) has been purchased by the NCISL and will be located with the staff at the front gate of the Richcraft soccer field for every game of the 2021 season.
The purchase of the device, which delivers an electric current to restart the heart when someone is in cardiac arrest, was championed by Director Andy Weston during planning meetings for the 2021 season.
“With the welfare of our members being our top priority it seemed a logical step to make this purchase” said Andy
Vice President Vladimir Makarov consulted with the City of Ottawa Paramedic department to identify the correct devise for our organization.
“The defibrillator chosen is designed to be used by those who have no medical training and it has an inbuilt speaker that gives simple step-by-step instructions” said Vladimir
