Towson, MD – Chesapeake AED Services was in Towson, MD at Calvert Hall College High School hosting Donuts & Defibrillators, an event highlighting the importance of Public Access Defibrillation or (PAD) programs and Hands Only CPR Training. Members of the faculty and student body empowered Calvert Hall’s PAD program by gaining important knowledge specific to their program that contributes to saving lives. The Donuts & Defibrillators event highlighted what a Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) program is, what type of units the school owns, where they are located, general knowledge on how to use a defibrillator, and also Hands Only CPR training. The most important part of a PAD program are its responders, and Calvert Hall College High School added more knowledgeable members to their program. Chesapeake AED Services is also exciting to be involved with another event at the school coming up next month, which is Calvert Hall College’s Health Fair on March 12th. The health fair will consist of multiple vendors promoting healthy living and Chesapeake AED Services will be teaching Hands Only CPR to students and faculty interested in a healthier lifestyle.
