Automated External Defibrillator at St. John’s
A defibrillator has been purchased for St. John’sLutheranChurch through part of the memorial funds given in memory of Dr. Leonard Gangeness. The Council gave approval to the Health Ministry’s request during early summer. The defibrillator is located by the telephone near the sanctuary on the west side. The staff has been trained in its use – although it is designed to be used safely by people who are not medically trained. Anyone who has taken a CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) instruction course can use an AED. AED’s are being used by a wide range of people and can be found almost everywhere in the community – including schools, churches, office buildings and law enforcement buildings and vehicles.
