World Record-Breaking CPR and AED Training Event at the 2010 National Scout Jamboree
Date:5/25/2010

The Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) announced plans to shatter the world record for mass CPR and AED training at the Boy Scouts of America’s 2010 National Scout Jamboree. This historic event will take place on July 29, 2010 at Fort A.P. Hill (VA). Over 20,000 scouts and scout leaders are expected participate.

Sudbury, MA (Vocus) May 25, 2010 -- Today, the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) announced plans to shatter the current world record for mass cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED) training at the Boy Scouts of America’s 2010 National Scout Jamboree. This historic event will take place on July 29, 2010 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM at the Fort A.P. Hill (VA) Arena. A Guinness World Record adjudicator is expected to be on-hand to verify and announce that the old record has been broken.

Over 20,000 scouts and scout leaders attending the 2010 National Scout Jamboree are expected to receive training on how to perform basic CPR and how to operate an AED. Participants will receive nationally-recognized course completion cards from ESCI following the training and will return home with the ability to perform these life-saving skills in their own communities.

“An event of this magnitude requires a tremendous investment of time and resources,” said Dr. Larry Newell, ECSI’s Executive Director. “Thankfully, ECSI, the Boy Scouts of America, and our incredible sponsors are fully dedicated to the mission of training these scouts so they can put these skills to use if ever called upon.”

This event is being offered by ECSI and the Boy Scouts of America, with generous support from Laerdal Medical Corporation, Cardiac Science Corporation, and Mary Washington Healthcare.
