No one knows better than police officers how quickly the unexpected can happen, and how fleeting life can be when it does. The Toronto Police Service (TPS) is a critical partner in helping The Mikey Network save lives.
It is our honour to donate MIKEY defibrillators to the Toronto Police Services, Provincial Courts and Collision Centres, as part of our Mikey Cops Are Tops program.
To date, approximately 100 MIKEYS have been donated through our Mikey Cops Are Tops program.
The program really paid off when a Toronto Police Officer was saved with a MIKEY defibrillator
On May 2, 2012, at the Toronto Police College, a 52 year old male police officer went into cardiac arrest while exercising as part of his regular training program.
“Fortunately, others at the Toronto Police College gymnasium on Birmingham St. in Etobicoke performed CPR and applied the MIKEY defibrillator. After two shocks, they were able to get a heartbeat.” said Mikey Network Chairman Hugh Heron.
The Mikey Network is proud to help the brave men and women of the Toronto Police Service by offering a second chance at life to those who experience sudden cardiac arrest.
