Nurse Sharon Thompson takes staff members through the protocols.

Team Jamaica Bickle began its Defibrillator to Schools Program in 2014 after the passing of student-athlete Cavahn McKenzie of St. Jago High and has since then donated dozens of units and facilitated several others with approximately 45 schools benefiting.  It is the organization’s goal to outfit each high school with an AED unit.

Diaspora entities Homesmart Realty, Irie Jam360, Jamaica Breezes Restaurant, Sandz Restaurant & Bar, The Door Restaurant, Tower Isles Frozen Foods and local entities, Jampro and The Airports Authority of Jamaica are among this year’s supporters and sponsors.
