Save Lives with AEDs
Intramural and Club sport teams play their games on Sayre Fields and Goodman Fields. These student teams do not have immediate access to medical support AED units in particular. In emergency situations, protocol is to contact Lehigh University police who are equipped with AED units. Our proposal is for funding for 3 individual AED units which will be strategically located at (1)-Sayre Field and (2)-Goodman Fields for use by the students in emergency situations. This will allow a faster response time for any student or individual in distress and is a life saving measure for all.
With additional funding, we would employ 2 student EMT supervisors whose main responsibility is to monitor the individual fields for medical emergencies.
