BLC Rec Basketball 2021-2022

Hello BLC Basketball Family!

Attached please find a fundraising letter that BLC Basketball and the Lions Club of Burlington is conducting. We are raising funds to purchase AED's (automated external defibrillator) for the Burlington Volunteer Fire Department EMS  first responders.


What is an AED? 

f you're wondering what an AED is – and why they seem to be located in most offices and public buildings, you're not alone. In fact, because these devices are now commonly available, more people than ever before are curious about them. So – just what is an AED?

"An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.  Sudden cardiac arrest is among the leading causes of death in the United States. In fact, more than 350,000 people will suffer a cardiac arrest this year. Currently, the only way to restore a regular heart rhythm during cardiac arrest is to use an AED.

Of course, you can – and should – request the assistance of trained medical professionals. However, because the average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8-12 minutes, and for each minute defibrillation is delayed, the odds of survival are reduced by approximately 10%, having access to and AED and knowing how to use one, is critical." curtesy of the American Redcross ( What is AED? | Learn What an AED Is | Red Cross )

Thank you very much and we hope you can help us.
