AED Awareness Sessions

22 Oct 2018 | Club Information

Following on from the highly successful roll-out of 1,200 AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) through Sport NI’s ‘Defibrillators for Sport’ Programme; Sport NI are offering the opportunity to provide any holders of AEDs, within Sports Clubs or Community Voluntary organisations; to undergo a FREE awareness session.

This session will cover the basic maintenance, and usage information that is essential to ensuring the maximum effectiveness of an AED in the event of an out of hospital cardiac arrest, and maximise the chances of survival within the first vital minutes afterwards. Community based defibrillators have proven to be essential in areas where immediate paramedic intervention or ambulance response may be restricted.

To date Sport NI have successfully trained over 860 people and are hoping to exceed 1000 participants this year. There will be 2 sessions per council area between 16th October and 8th December 2018.

The awareness sessions will last approximately 2 hours. AEDs should be used as a part of the ‘chain of survival’ and not as a substitute or alternative for CPR. Please note that this awareness session is not subject to examination or any qualification upon successful completion.
