Guy Leech – for Automated External Defibrillator
Yes, compared to a full-on aquatic and leisure centre, heart attacks and other conditions that require the heart to be re-started are rare at Swim Schools. However, they do happen! Think past the young children in classes. Think the accompanying parents. Think grandparents coming to watch. Think adult learners and lap swimmers. Having an AED on site can make a massive difference in successfully reviving the patient.
A goal of the Australian Swim Schools Association is to have 100% of Swim Schools with a high quality AED that meets (or exceeds) ANZCOR Guidelines. To help make this a reality, ASSA have partnered with Guy Leech to bring such a unit – The LIFEPAK CR Plus* – to you – with a 10% discount or a super payment plan.
