Heart felt donation to SEAPARC

Ron Kumar, right, from Peoples Drug Mart, donated a fully automatic defibrillator (AED) to SEAPARC. Testing it is Linda Finch, program services manager at SEAPARC, and watching is Jason Lanthier from Alert First Aid.   The defibrillator will improve the chances of CPR’s success rate. For every minute a person is in cardiac arrest, their chance of survival decreases by 10 per cent. The defibrillator is fully automatic and it talks users through the CPR process.  Five years ago Kumar donated an AED to the Sooke fire department. - Pirjo Raits
