Help AED Save Lives

- Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the #1 killer in schools (7-10,000 annually) and in the nation (450,000 annually)
- Cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack. It’s an electrical malfunction that creates an abnormal heart rhythm that only a shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED) can correct; chest compressions alone won’t work.
- If a person suffering cardiac arrest can have an AED placed on them within the first 3 minutes of the cardiac event, their chance of survival will increase by 90%. Chances decrease 10% every minute thereafter.
- The average 911 response time is 10-12 minutes. This is why it’s vital to have these devices readily available to avoid possible brain damage upon resuscitation.

By your investing through donations, the Alliance will purchase and facilitate:

-Supplies of AEDs to fire and rescue departments throughout the country to be used in our national award-winning “Borrow an AED” program. The AEDs will be available to the public to check out for free for any public events, gatherings and activities.
