St. Mark’s United Church is equipped with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The device is located by the fire pull station on the west wall of the Upper Hall. It is a portable unit, with a voice prompt that will initiate in the event of an emergency. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for laymen and the unit will not work if the patient has a heartbeat. The unit will not automatically contact 911, therefore you must dial 911 before initiating the unit. Pediatric pads are included in the unit so that they will be available for use with all ages that use our facilities.
