Peel Regional Council Learns Hands Only CPR As Part Of Delegation To Launch New Paramedic Public Access Defibrillation Program
Peel Regional Council will learn CPR as part of a delegation from Peel Regional Paramedic Services (PRPS) for their Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) program.
With each passing minute after a cardiac arrest, the probability of survival declines by 7%, which is why performing CPR and using an AED right away is critical to giving that individual the best chance of survival. The PAD program aims to save more lives by working to ensure all Peel residents have access to lifesaving AED devices in public places and through raising awareness with the public that anyone can ‘be the one’ and help save a life.
