To make High Camp a safer place former host Jake Christ generously donated an Automatic External Defibrillator, or AED.  Jake only hosted for one winter (2007-2008) but his charismatic presence had a big impact on the guests that connected with him.  I still regularly get asked how he is doing.  The answer is he is doing great! He is working for Phsyio Control, the world’s leading manufacturer of AEDs.

They were the first company to develop this life saving technology and now they save a life on average every ten minutes. We hope we never have to use it but if anyone does have a heart attack at High Camp it could very well save their life.  We have it easily accessible mounted on the wall of the lodge next to our first aid kit. Thanks Jake!
