In case of Emergency, Call 911 and provide address of our Courts

13800 W Deer Valley Drive, Sun City West, AZ

DID YOU KNOW…….

Courts 11 – 18 (NEW COURTs)

The new surface will feel different than our current courts and will tend to grab more. So please be careful when you play.  We suggest you wear older shoes.  Newer shoes will wear quicker, on the newer surface.

Enjoy!

AED

According to the American Heart Association, over 294,000 Americans experience sudden cardiac arrest. While most common in adults with coronary artery disease, sudden cardiac arrest can strike people of all ages. Defibrillation, or restoring a heart beat, by means of an AED machine can double the chance of survival in these cases.

DID YOU KNOW……. that Liberty Courts and RH Johnson Courts  have an “Automated External Defibrillator” (AED) machine located by the restrooms.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Determine if the person is in cardiac arrest. To determine cardiac arrest, check responsiveness, breathing, and pulse.

CALL 911 FOR ANYONE WHO IS UNCONSCIOUS OR APPEARS TO BE IN CARDIAC ARREST.

If the person is unconscious, not breathing and has no pulse, assume they are in cardiac arrest and obtain the AED. The AED will know for sure if the person is in need of a shock to the heart.

DON’T BE AFRAID to use an AED. They are programmed to only shock people who are in need of a shock.

There are clear, simple instructions on the AED machine showing you where to place the electrodes. After placing the electrodes, turn on the machine, it will begin to analyze the person’s heart rhythm, usually taking between 10 to 30 seconds to determine if a shock is to be delivered. Stand clear and deliver shock if so advised.

Resume CPR on the person after the shock is delivered until help arrives. CPR is very critical to the outcome of a cardiac arrest patient.
