Paso Robles High School hosting dedication ceremony for new Automated External Defibrillators

Paso Robles High School is hosting a dedication ceremony Monday morning for its three new Automated External Defibrillators, or AED's.

Without medical assistance, less than 5% of people who suffer a heart attack will survive, but AED's bring the survival rate up to 90%.

The high school says more than 400,000 people die from cardiac arrest each year, and about 14,000 of those people are under the age of 18.

The new AED's make Paso Robles High School a "Heart Safe School."

The dedication ceremony starts at 11:00 a.m.
