170506 ~ AED!
I know a lot of you are thinking “AED? Oh great, yet another CrossFit acronym that I have no idea what it means.” This one is an important one, not so much that you remember the name, but that you know it’s in the box! AED stands for Automatic External Defibrillator and it has saved lives in gyms all over the world. In the next week or so we will be getting our very own AED at Canuck!
On a more general note, stories come out pretty frequently about lives being saved in public places, and sporting events because an AED and someone who knew how to use it were available. We want the box to be as safe an environment as possible for all of our members and we think this is definitely a step in the right direction.
Since we are talking about safety issues etc. it might be a good time to remind you that all the coaches ARE trained in basic first aid and CPR.....actually...they will be taking their refresher course this afternoon! Just like the AED, once we are trained we hope we will never need to use any of it, but it’s better that we have the equipment and the knowledge if it became necessary!
Please welcome the newest and most important piece of equipment to the box!
Please see Whiteboard for details.
