Heart and First Aid Icon, Text Reads: AEDs, Automated External Defibrillator Machines

Bulldog Families,

The health and safety of our Bulldogs is our highest priority on our campus. We aim to provide the facilities and tools necessary for a healthy learning, playing, and performing environment. Some of the most essential tools for safe and healthy operation are AEDs, or automated external defibrillators. 

Poland Local Schools ensures that AEDs are available at every event on campus. All AEDs are located strategically to allow for quick access during events. For athletic events, our athletic trainer and/or administrators are present to assist and enact emergency protocols.

On some professional days, Poland Local Schools hosts Poland Fire to conduct AED/CPR trainings for staff members, coaches, and teachers. We are very thankful for the partnership we've built with our local civil services and first responders, who are often present at large events and protect our people.

Please view the following resources below to learn about AEDs on our campus and what to do in an emergency situation. We appreciate your support in our mission to provide a safe space for your students.

Thank you,

Matt McKenzie
Director of Operations, Poland Local Schools

An AED will often be enclosed in a case to avoid tampering. The case will likely sound an alarm when opened.
