LAFAYETTE, La. -

State Representative Vincent Pierre wants to make sure all schools are prepared to handle a medical emergency.

 This afternoon in Lafayette, Pierre presented Holy Family School with a potentially life-saving automated external defibrillator or AED.

"We've had some incidents that occur right here in our parishes in New Iberia where a life was saved because an AED was there," said Pierre. "With an AED present on the premises, it's seven to ten times quicker that a child's life can be saved, and we're just happy that we're able to provide that machine."
