Church buys automatic defibrillator

Thursday, July 17, 2014 - Updated: 1:28 AM

CANAJOHARIE -- Members of the Reformed Church of Canajoharie and the organizations that use the church’s facilities are now better prepared to help heart attack victims with the aid of an automatic external defibrillator. 

On Saturday, July 12, eight people were trained by Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps (GAVAC) Training Officer Adam Kinsey. The participants received adult and child CPR training and learned how to use the machine, which helps restore a normal heart rhythm by delivering an electric shock to the heart.

The Consistory of the Reformed Church of Canajoharie credits Operation Manager William Beevers of Rural Metro, Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps; Dr. Kenneth Riley, Emergency Medical Supervisor for the church; and Ronald Dievendorf for assisting in the acquisition of the defibrillator.
