(CMR) Lobster Pot owner, Marcus Cumber recently purchased and donated a HeartSine 360P AED from the Cayman Heart Fund. The AED was purchased for Island Montessori school.
Mr. Cumber expressed concern that cardiac arrest is one of Cayman’s worst life-threatening medical emergencies and wanted the school to be prepared in a cardiac event.
The Owner/Principal of Island Montessori, Clare Thorpe, said,
“they are so grateful for the support of Marcus Cumber and Lobster Pot restaurant for donating an AED in their school. Although they hope never to have to use it, it is comforting to know that it is available for the staff to use as they are crucial in an emergency.”
Coordinator for the Cayman Heart Fund, Angelique Bodden, applauded Mr. Cumber for donating the AED to the school but also expressed the importance of learning CPR and first aid training. She welcomes the community to contact her for CPR and First Aid Training information.
