Because every minute counts when it comes to a cardiac emergency and in a concern to protect the life of its citizens and employees, the Borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro has installed six new defibrillators in its municipal buildings.
In addition to these six new defibrillators and the nine installed last year, two defibrillators can be found in the public security vehicles for a total of 17 devices. Thanks to this recent acquisition, the Borough is proud to announce that all municipal buildings are now equipped with a defibrillator.
“Greater access to defibrillators in Pierrefonds-Roxboro municipal buildings will allow us to be part of the survival chain of a citizen who suffers cardiac arrest. Simple to use, the portable device indicates to the user what to do step-by-step; A first aid equipment to ensure greater safety for our citizens.”, explained Mr. Dimitrios (Jim) Beis, Pierrefonds- Roxboro Borough Mayor, and Member of Ville de Montréal’s Executive Committee, responsible for procurement, sports and recreation, and communities of diverse origins.
