FEBRUARY 2, 2018 

 On Friday, February 2, 2018 about twenty or more of our club members stayed after bowling to hear a presentation on the use of an AED (automatic external defibrilator) and a review on hands only cpr.  The presentation was put on by Captain Jaime Villa from the Oxnard Fire Department.  Captain Villa is their Department's EMS Coordinator.  He covered the basics of using the AED and what we can expect when we open the device up and put it into use.  Our own AED is provided by the City of Oxnard  and they do the maintenance  such as battery and chest patch replacement.  We have a window sticker on our club house door that indicates that there is an AED available inside.  Ours is kept on the wall inside our office along with a pouch of extra equipment to also be used with the AED.  There were lots of  questiions asked and answered.  Captain Villa said he could return and put on another training session where all could participate in chest compression CPR practice.

Ours is somewhat different but has the same operation features.
