Installation of Automated External Defibrillators in School Facilities
Submitted by: Kootenay Lake DPAC, SD#8
Be it resolved that
- BCCPAC send out an information sheet to all PACs and School Districts in BC alerting them to the PADS and ACT programs so they can apply if they think it is worthwhile in their situation.
- Lobby for continued government support of the PADS program so that schools where it makes sense to install AEDs will have funding available.
- Request that the Ministry of Education recommend that Districts consider installing AEDs in schools.
Be it further resolved that
All costs associated with purchase, installation and maintenance of AEDs as well as required staff training in their use be fully funded by the government of BC without reducing regular school operating and capital grants
