Wonder35 Posted January 20, 2020 Share Posted January 20, 2020 It may be a stretch to include life saving equipment and training within this topic but here I go anyway, As we approach the anniversary of these 2 on ice incidents I feel duty bound to remind my fellow 'tenders of the importance we place on these items. Do you know where the Automated External Defibrillator is located in your local arena? Is anyone on your team trained in its use? What about performing CPR? At the very least is a cellular phone nearby when you're on the ice? Does it have a strong signal? We discovered that the phone we always left on our bench had a weak signal and was useless the first time we really needed it. In 2007 our team decided to purchase our own AED because some arenas didn't have one while others kept them under lock and key in the office, rather useless when time is of the essence. Yes, we are a senior team, minimum age 55, but please don't ever assume that youth makes you bullet proof. Recently we had a similar situation in a high school gym incident. Enough preaching, enjoy and learn ................. P.S. This is not a paid commercial on behalf of John Brown Sports. I had just received my new gear and it shows.
