No registration is required. Please come for the chance to familiarize yourself with this life-saving equipment. It is easy to use, but we understand the hesitation to try if you’ve never been exposed to it. You will not be receiving any type of certification for attending.
Thanks to the Lodi Valley Masonic Lodge’s generous donation, the Village of Black Earth’s municipal building now has an Automated External Defibrillator, or AED. An AED is a battery operated portable device. Leads are attached to a patient and the device check’s the patient’s heart rhythm. If the device advises so, a button is pushed to send a shock to the patient’s heart. This shock will attempt to get the patient’s heart to resume beating effectively. This machine saves lives, but only if someone uses it.
The Black Earth Police Department will host a training where District 1 EMS will be giving the public hands-on AED training.
