American School of Valencia has recently installed a semi automatic defibrillator in the main school entrance, in front of the offices. In addition to this, this week some staff members took a first aid course which included theory and training on the use of this device. These members were our Preschool and Elementary Vice Principal, Ms. Elena Corchs; Preschool teachers Ms Lauren Guerra and Ms Nicky Chakravarty; PE teachers Miguel Pompa, Robert MacLarty and Andy Ojelade; ASV+ coordinator Ms. Escarlata Casas, and the school nurse, Ms Inma Requena. Although there is no specific regulation about the use of defibrillators in schools, this device and the specific training make ASV a cardiac-protected community.
