Special Educators are trained to use defibrillators

Deputy headteachers from Glendene School Craig Platt and Liz Coxon with teacher Mark McNichol and the new defibrillator which has been donated to the school.

Educators at a school in England for students with special needs are being trained to use an automated external defibrillator that was donated to the school. "The aim is that all staff members will be trained to use it," one teacher said. "We hope that we will never need to put it into action, but it is good to know that we would be able to bring a child or adult round in an emergency. They really can make the difference between life and death." Sunderland Echo (U.K.)
