Police officers risk their lives to protect the rest of us. When one of these heroes dies, the loss is tragic – especially if the culprit is Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
A 52-year-old police officer’s heart stopped while exercising during his training program at the Toronto Police College. Thanks to the Mikey Cops Are Tops program, trained responders performed CPR, applied two shocks of a MIKEY defibrillator, and he became the 14th person saved through The Mikey Network’s efforts.
MIKEYs have been placed in all the Toronto Police Services stations and holding cells, Provincial Courts and Collision Centres to help safeguard those who serve and protect us.
