The public is invited to attend the Sons of Norway Vennelag 1-546 meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. at the Lindstrom Community Center, 13292 Sylvan Avenue, Lindstrom, for an opportunity to participate in a demonstration of how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), as well as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). 

When a person displays symptoms of heart attack or stroke, what can the average person do until EMS arrives?

EMS instructor Joe Grafft, NREMT, of Customized Safety Training, LLC, will bring his training expertise, plus four “Rescue Annes” with readouts and AED trainers. 

Rescue Anne is a training mannequin used for teaching cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and was created by Norwegian toymaker Asmund Laerdal, the Austrian-Czech physician Peter Safar and American physician James Elam. 

A short business meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., followed at 7 p.m. by the demonstration, and then coffee and treats will be served. Questions can be directed to
