Providence Christian School Named "Heart-Safe" School
A Wiregrass school is getting state-wide recognition for their proactive approach to emergencies.
Providence Christian School is one of 12 schools in Alabama to be named a "Heart-Safe" School. They earned the title by educating students about the 7 Automated External Defibrillators, AED, on the campus.
The knowledge of these machines allow students and staff to spring into action whenever an emergency occurs.
LifeStart donated an eighth AED to Providence Christian on Friday, Nov. 21.
If used correctly, the machines can increase the survival rate to 50 percent when someone goes into sudden cardiac arrest.
