Knights of Columbus donate automatic external defibrillators to parish

Never knowing when a cardiac event may occur, on March 10, 2015, the Knights of Columbus at St. Catherine of Siena Church have provided the parish with Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) units. Using an AED in conjunction with Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) increases the chances of survival for someone in cardiac arrest.

In order to ensure that a trained responder is available at church functions, the Knights and the Ushers of the church will soon be trained in CPR and the use of AEDs with the help of Hunterdon Medical Center. Both parish locations -- the church in Pittstown and the Parish Center in Union Township -- are now equipped with AED units.
