An automated external defibrillator has been installed at Duncan City Hall.

The AED can be found in the basement, which is accessible to the public during the week from 8 AM to 4 PM in the summer.

The Farmer’s Market Society and Duncan Business Improvement Association have access to it on the weekends.

“With so many events occurring in City Square we are very pleased to be able to have an AED available for public use when needed,” said Mayor Phil Kent via a press release.

The device was donated from the BC Public Access to Defibrillation Program.
