Paradice AED Defibrillator

Paradice Install ZOLL AEDs (Defibrillators) At Avondale & Botany

By | | No Comments

AIHA are happy to announce that Paradice recently installed a ZOLL AED Plus defibrillator at each of the Botany and Avondale ice rinks.

As part of this, AIHA are committed to ensuring as many club members as possible are trained on how to use the AED, should it ever be required.

The AEDs are mounted on the wall at the reception entrance at each rink and can be retrieved by anyone in an emergency.

The company who supplied the device, AEDNZ, has put together an online training page which will teach you everything you need to know about operating the device. These videos will only require 10 minutes of your time and we strongly encourage all club members to check them out.

AIHA would like to express their sincere thanks to Paradice for purchasing these AEDs. While we hope these never have to be used in a rescue, it is great that each ice rink is now equipped with this lifesaving piece of equipment.

AIHA Take Part in Global Girls’ Game

By | | No Comments

At 7:00 am on Saturday 10th March, 20 wide eyed and enthusiastic women gathered at Avondale’s Paradice Arena to partake in the Global Girls’ Game. The global event featured two teams – Black & White – facing off against each other around the world, with New Zealand having the honour of starting the 53 hour long event.

The NZ women had a fun, fast paced showing which saw White take a 3-0 lead and ended with a 4-3 win to the White team. The goal-tending was top notch with Janet Kidd (White) and Maddy Fox (Black) standing strong as a backstop for their respective squads. Tara Tissink broke through with four points on the board and way too much energy for that time in the morning. All in all, we are thrilled support the IIHF in their initiatives to promote women’s hockey. Thanks also to Kristina Higgins who flew back from Rarotonga to participate in the day.
