The Mikey Network partners with Toronto Catholic District School Board
Sep. 20, 2019
The Toronto Catholic District School Board is taking the important step of equipping all 202 of its facilities with automated external defibrillators. The AEDs, as they are known, are potentially lifesaving devices and are supplied by The Mikey Network.
“We appreciate the feedback provided by parents, staff, students and other community members regarding AEDs and we continue to look for opportunities that help us ensure the safety and well-being of all our staff and students, which is always our number one priority,” says TCDSB Chair Maria Rizzo. “Through this partnership with The Mikey Network, we have successfully achieved ourgoal of having every school site equipped with an AED by the end of 2019, ahead of schedule.”
“Today marks an important moment, aimed at putting a spotlight on the challenge that people living with rare, congenital heart conditions face on a daily basis, as well as the emotional toll it takes on their loved ones,” adds TCDSB Vice-Chair Michael Del Grande. “Events like this give us anopportunity to come together as a Catholic community to show our support to those vulnerable toincidents of sudden cardiac arrest and to show them that there is help.”
In December 2018, the TCDSB board approved the allocation of about $210,000 to fund the purchase of the AEDs. Staff received CPR and AED training over the 2019 March Break. The Board also arranged first aid courses during the 2018-19 school year, so a minimum of two staff members per school are trained in standard first aid, CPR and AED use. Most schools already have more than two certified first aiders.
“We are delighted to partner with the Toronto Catholic District School Board on their installation of potentially life saving defibrillators,” says Mikey Network Chairman Hugh Heron. “With our Mikey placements, we are helping give people a second chance at life. As a not-for-profit organization, we’re committed to teaching people how to use defibrillators and how to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle. Over the years we have trained over 13,400 in CPR and AED, and to date, have 43 recorded saves, eight of whom are under 18 years of age, and that is very gratifying.”
The Mikey Network has also created a free mobile app called The Mikey Young at Heart app, designed to help teach students CPR and AED training, making them more confident to use an AED or administer CPR should they ever need. Time spent learning on the app can go toward their high school volunteer hours.
