RV Daily Tips Newsletter Issue 873, AED's at campgrounds.

Chuck Woodbury, Editor & Publisher of the RV Daily Tips "Newsletter, wrote a very interesting piece on, can you survive a heart attack at a campground. He normally writes about all things electrical, so all things considered he's still somewhat in his wheelhouse. Considering the average age of the general population of "boomers" we should probably ask at every RV parks where we either collectively or individually camp if they have one of these devices.

Copy and pasted from his article.
Interestingly, both heart failure from electric shock and heart failure from a heart attack require the same basic steps to help save a life, and the first one is knowing where the AED is located at your campground or building you’re meeting in. So ask at any campground where you’re staying if they have an AED and where it’s located. If they don’t have one, tell them they should!"

"But first, what is an AED? Well, it’s an Automated External Defibrillator and its job is to help restart a heart that has either stopped or is in fibrillation, where it just shudders uncontrollably and doesn’t pump any blood. And while an AED is required in all schools and federal buildings, and even many churches, it doesn’t appear to be required at any campgrounds (yet). I think campgrounds especially need an AED since they’re not only frequently miles from civilization by design, but also they’re usually filled with a large number of senior citizens that have a higher possibility of a heart attack – that has nothing to do with getting an electrical shock."

Something to think about.
