St. Croix Avis - Tuesday, March 18, 2014
"Sen. Sammuel Sanes sponsored legislation related to AEDs that became law in 2011. The law requires that each public high school with an inter-scholastic athletic program must maintain an AED on the premises and be accessible during school-related programs, functions or sporting events. The law also requires at least one AED-trained school staff member be present at such events. Sanes worked on the legislation after his friend and fraternity brother Allen Woods died from cardiac arrest at David C. Canegata Ballpark. The ballpark has since been equipped with an AED as part of Will's project.An application for smart phones called Crowdsav will find the location of the nearest AED in proximity to the phone. After selecting a location equipped with an AED, the application provides a map to the destination. The application includes AEDs on St. Croix that were placed by the AED Fund as well as devices that are owned by businesses. Sanes and employees from his office were instrumental in getting St. Croix's AED locations included on the smart phone application.
