MIKEY ON BOARD
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading killer of Canadians. Over 10 per cent of occurrences happen in public, and victims who are not revived within 3-5 minutes usually die. The use of an AED by a trained ‘target responder’ within the first moments can improve the victim’s survival rate by up to 50%. The Mikey Network was established to promote heart-healthy living, and to place public access defibrillators in as many public places as possible. We are partners in the Mikey On Board Program which places defibrillators in each of our moving trucks, and trains our drivers and movers how to use them. If you see one of our trucks, you will know that help is at hand in the event of a cardiac emergency.
