An AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is a portable electronic device that automatically detects disturbances in the rhythm of a heartbeat and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.

FAQs 
 
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
 
This training does not include treatment of infants and children under 55 pounds. For infants you need to take a full first aid class. Participants in our training should be 8th grade and up. Younger kids often lack the strength to work effectively with the manikins
 
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
 
Free parking outside of Plymouth City Hall. The Public Safety Building, which is connected to City Hall, houses the Plymouth Fire Department administrative offices and the Plymouth Police Department. Entrance is to the left of the main entrance of Plymouth City Hall. Meeting Room B on the second floor.

No
 
Can I update my registration information?

Do you issue an American Heart Association card upon completion?
 
This training is called Adult Bystander CPR/AED training. Although this is an AHA approved course, no AHA cards will be issued. Our Rotary does issue a card and similar to AHA, we recommend retraining at least every two years. We teach everything the HeartSaver course teaches except providing Emergency Breaths. We teach Hands Only/Compression CPR. It does not qualify for health care providers recertification.

Plymouth Rotary Club is honored to have teamed with other clubs and organizations over the past few years in building new outdoor spaces for kids to enjoy and explore at Crescent Cove Children's residential respite care in Brooklyn Center.  The full play space project is complete and a ribbon-cutting ceremony took place June 24th!  The musical instruments were generously donated by Rotary Clubs in Minneapolis City of Lakes, Plymouth, Orono, Brooklyn Center, St. Cloud, Minneapolis #9, Burnsville, and Burnsville Breakfast, with a matching grant from Rotary District 5950.  

  

Thank you for your service to our country!
 
The unveiling of Maple Plain's Veterans Memorial Park was Saturday. Several community organizations have worked together on this project over the past couple of years, including Plymouth Rotary Club and the Rotary District 5950.
 
   
 
 
Thank you for donating to The Plymouth Rotary Club....a total of $22,500-plus was raised!  
 
Over the last 20 years we have raised nearly $725,000 and given 100% of our profits to organizations, mostly supporting youth and education and Community Health (with our Heart Safe Program offering free training to citizens in “hands only” CPR and use of AED’s We have trained over 6500 area citizens in these lifesaving skills so far and have confirmation that our efforts have saved at least two lives. We have also donated AED’s to several community locations.
 
In 2020, focus was placed on food shelves at Interfaith Outreach, PRISM and Second Harvest Heartland and the Food Group as residents struggled more than ever to feed their families with rampant unemployment. We also focused on our local long-term care facilities by supplying, programing and training to use technology to many of these long term care facilities so they could do Facetime or ZOOM meetings with family members who weren’t allowed to visit in person. We also provided a weekly “touch” consisting of individually wrapped snacks, candy, arts and crafts supplies, etc., items designed to boost the spirits of both residents and staff when we were all so isolated.
 
With this year’s profits we will continue to give scholarships to areas students, fund grant requests to organizations focused on kids and education and continue to support the Heart Safe CPR training.
