Automated External Defibrillators
WESD has placed AEDs in the Marion Center, Yamhill Center and other school sites. These portable electronic devices automatically diagnose life-threatening cardiac issues and treat them through defibrillation. Their use can mean the difference between life and death for a person having a cardiac event. The devices have easy to follow, automated instructions, but the following videos may be helpful if you are ever called upon to use an AED at a WESD site or other public area where one is available.
