CUPE 1252 donation of $30,000

aed sponsorshipCardiac arrest can happen without warning, to anyone. Performing CPR and using an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) until emergency medical services arrive can double the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest.

We would like to recognize the wonderful generosity of CUPE 1252, New Brunswick Council of Hospital Unions. With their donation of $30,000, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of New Brunswick is able to place 8 AEDs in elementary and middle schools throughout the province where this lifesaving device was previously absent.

It is thanks to thoughtful contributions from organizations such as CUPE 1252 that AEDs are becoming accessible in more public locations throughout New Brunswick. Thank you!
