AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR (AED) TRAINING
The Recreation Commission and the Trustees of the River Edge Central Athletic Council have been working over the past three years to provide an Automated External Defibrillator program that will provide immediate access to an AED unit on River Edge fields. After researching the best AED units for our needs, the Commission has chosen the Cardiac Science Powerheart G5, a unit that integrates an effective CPR component.
On March 20th, Mayor and Council approved the lease agreement for four (4) AED units -Cardiac Science Powerheart G5 - which will be placed at KBG Field, Little League Fields, Roosevelt School Field and Cherry Hill School Field.The Commission will require all volunteer coaches to be trained on the use of the Cardiac Science Powerheart G5 . Attendance will qualify as completion of your AED training requirement.
Current Volunteer Coaches will receive an invitation to attend the training--there will be two sessions offered on April 5, 2017, via SignUp Genius. Please be on the lookout for this invitation. If you do not complete the training, you will not be allowed to coach in any capacity this season.
