Did you know there are over 25 publicly available AEDs on Bowen Island?

An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a small, lightweight, and portable electronic device that delivers an electric shock through the chest wall of a person whose heart has stopped beating. It is proven to be one of the most important tools in saving the life of someone suffering sudden cardiac arrest.

AEDs are designed to be easy for anyone to use.
