LCCC Adds Defibrillators Thoughout Campus

Lydiaflickr

In addition to all the new students arriving soon, Laramie County Community College will have something else new on campus,10 new automated external defibrillators to help restore normal heart rhythm during cardiac arrest. Previously, LCCC only had units in patrol cars and the physical education building. The new AED units are located throughout the Cheyenne campus.

James Crosby, LCCC’s campus safety director, is quite pleased by the administration’s commitment to expand the number of AED units.

LCCC will offer several training sessions for staff and faculty beginning this month and continuing throughout the school year. Additionally, the college has budgeted to purchase two more units in the coming year. Crosby noted that the American Heart Association recommends defibrillation within five minutes or less of collapse. Unfortunately, it often takes emergency medical services teams, on average, six to twelve minutes to arrive. That time can be reduced if an AED is on-site and can be brought to the victim quickly.
