Kim Craitor stresses the importance of Defibrillators

Niagara Falls MPP, Kim Craitor speaks to students about the danger of heart disease and cause of heart attacks. He stresses students not to smoke and keep active daily. Very few get another chance at life after experiencing a heart attack, that can be varied between a healthy lifestyle.

Those lives that could have been saved if there were a defibrillator and a professional nearby. But now thanks to technology, the tool has been automated and as easy as jump starting your car. Craitor supports the idea of having AED’s supplied in community centers, or ice rinks. The Good Samaritan Law passed last year in parliament protects those who use AED’s in good faith to save a life.
