Save a life on a layover at Detroit Metro Airport

AEDs – Automated External Defibrillators – are standard items at airports these days and there have been plenty of instances where these devices have made the difference in saving lives.

Do you know how an AED works? I don’t and I should. We all should. And if you have a few minutes to spare at Detroit Metro Airport today or tomorrow (June 5 o r 6th) you can learn how.

To mark National CPR/AED Awareness Week, the Southeastern Michigan Chapter of the American Red Cross will be at the airport showing folks how to use an AED. For free! If you’re there, I urge you to stop by. The life you save could be …. mine!

Look for the display table by the water feature, post-security, in the McNamara Terminal.
