Collingwood to receive donation of Outdoor Public Access Defibrillator at Sunset Point

The Town of Collingwood is pleased to announce a new lifesaving station being installed at Sunset Point, thanks to the generous donation of the Peggy Hill Team.

“Our communities having access to life-saving AED’s is a cause that is near and dear to me, as I know firsthand how they can make all the difference in saving a loved one’s life. I am proud to help contribute to the community of Collingwood’s safety and well-being. It is my hope that this AED will provide peace of mind to everyone in the community who knows that every second counts in an emergency.”

This is the third Peggy Hill Team SaveStation Waterfront placement including the Town of Orillia and Town of Innisfil.

The Town will hold a presentation ceremony and ribbon cutting for the new SaveStation outdoor cabinet that houses a life-saving automated external defibrillator (AED) installed at Sunset Point Park Canteen on Tuesday, May 30th at 4:00 p.m. This is an opportunity to present our first outdoor public access defibrillator and recognize The Peggy Hill Team for the donation.

Save a Life in 3 Steps: Call. Push. Shock.

When sudden cardiac arrest strikes, every second counts and we are highly dependent on the general public to quickly locate an AED and feel confident to use it!

The Outdoor Public Access SaveStation will be placed on the front of the Canteen at Sunset Point Park for residents and visitors throughout all 4 seasons.  This life-saving device will be available 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, should someone go into sudden cardiac arrest.  The machine is fully automatic, so all you have to do is follow the instructions on the side of the machine.
