AED registry set up

The Heart and Stroke Foundation is creating a registry of local AED units for 911 dispatchers.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation strongly urges all those in possession of an AED to register their device so that all 911 dispatchers can notify those in an emergency situation where the nearest AED is located.

“This includes businesses, churches, schools, municipal buildings, individuals with an AED in their home – everyone,” says Heart and Stroke resuscitation manager Shelley Parker. Users of the registry have the option to make their information public or to allow only BC emergency services to see it.

It only takes a few minutes to register your device at: www.bcpadprogram.ca . Those few minutes can save a life.
