GYFL Receives donations for AED

GREENVILLE – Recently Greenville Youth Football League (GYFL) purchased an automated electronic defibrillator (AED). An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layperson, and the use of AEDs is taught in many first aid, certified first responder, and basic life support (BLS) level cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes. If an AED is available at the place the victim collapses, survival increases exponentially. This purchase was done through the Wayne Healthcare Foundation with the generous donations from the Fraternal Order of Police, Thomas P.L. Lowe #130 and Las Marias Mexican Grill. Without their support this might not have been possible.

The GYFL would like to Thank these local organizations for their generous donations!
