Kinsmen donate defibrillation equipment

Comments

Estevan Kinsmen Club members Byron Stepp and Greg Cromarty presented an AED defibrillator to Estevan Diversified Services participants on May 30.

Estevan Diversified Services’ (EDS) SARCAN recycling depot now has an AED defibrillator on-site, thanks to a donation from the Estevan Kinsmen Club.

The Kinsmen presented the life-saving equipment to EDS participants on May 30. Kinsmen members Byron Stepp and Greg Cromarty said it was a perfect fit to provide the equipment to EDS, as they view it as a great organization, and they meet at EDS twice a month.

EDS program coordinator Roberta DeRosier said that one of their participants suffered a heart attack a few years ago. It didn’t happen during the day, or at the EDS site, but the defibrillator allows them to be ready if such an emergency occurs.

Several EDS employees have had necessary training to operate the equipment, she said.

The defibrillator costs about $3,000, Stepp said. They have presented the equipment to six other organizations in the area, including a number of schools.

Money to purchase the defibrillators came through such initiatives as the Kinsmen's Christmas tree sales, dream vacation lottery, Christmas card lane and golf tournament.
