The Mikey Network has committed to donating 250 MIKEYs (defibrillators) for The Peel District School Board to place in all of its elementary and secondary schools.  Chairman Hugh Heron, joins Tom Hayes on CityNews to talk about why we need defibrillators in all schools, and why they should be as common as fire extinguishers in public places.

We love what our friends at Toronto EMS are doing with the Toronto Raptors to promote CPR Awareness!

Here’s a fun video they put together.

Remember, if you’re not comfortable giving a stranger mouth to mouth, Hands Only CPR can still save a life.

CTV News reports on Craig and Jennifer Hansen, using their MIKEY defibrillator to save their two year old son, Carter. The video aired on CTV News, December 11, 2012

The Hansens received their MIKEY through our Mikey’s Kids program, which provides a MIKEY (a portable automated external defibrillator- AED), to families whose children are at high risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest to carry with them at all times so their kids are protected at home, school or play.
It is a fantastic story and we wanted to share it with the entire Mikey Network family.

It takes a community to help a child with heart problems…
Please help us place a MIKEY in the home of every family in need.


This Save-A-Life Simulator is part of the The HeartRescue Project and it is so amazing we just had to share it.Heart Rescue Project

It walks you through a situation where someone is suffering from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).  As it tests your knowledge, it simultaneously teaches you what to do if you find yourself in the position of helping someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest.

Please take the time to go through the simulator.  It is very well done, and it’s also a lot of fun!


The HeartRescue Project, funded by the Medtronic Foundation, is dedicated to improving how sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is recognized, treated and measured.
