What is an AED?

An AED is a portable Automated External Defibrillator used to restart someone's heart in the event of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Think of you car with a dead battery and needing a jump start.

AED Facts

95% of those who suffer from SCA die because CPR and defibrillation usually occur too late, if at all. If CPR and an AED are applied within 5 munutes, at least 40,000 more lives per year could be saved.

What is a SCA?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Although the reported incidence in youth is less than adults, SCA is not a rare occurrence. In fact, SCA affects about 16 people under the age of 18 every day. SCA is a public health crisis - and bystander intervention with CPR and AED's can mean the difference between live and death.

we have a great support team.
