Talk about it Tuesday
Keeping our community safe is a team effort. The Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department wants you to know you can help save a life!
Around Town, we have AEDs, or Automated External Defibrillators. These devices check the heart rhythm when a person is having a heart attack and will send an electric shock to the heart if needed. Here are some interesting facts about these life-saving devices:
- Every Town facility, and most police cars, are equipped with an AED. That means that if a cardiac event happens in a Town facility or when Police are driving around Town, an AED is close by to aid CPR.
- In 2016, the Town residents opted to allow TABOR money to go back to Police and Fire. Part of the money went toward almost 70 AEDs for the Town facilities and police vehicles.
- AEDs save lives! Some experts believe that with access to AEDs and CPR combined, thousands of lives can be saved.
Each Tuesday, we encourage everyone to take a moment and talk about it. This week, we encourage you to talk about AEDs. We’ll keep the topics and tips coming. Learn more about CRFD at CRgov.com/fire.
