Schools are well-drilled and prepared to keep students, staff, and community safe from safety risks such as fires, violence, and other emergencies. Shouldn’t you also ensure your campus is prepared to respond to Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), one of the leading causes of death in the United States?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest takes the lives of over 366,000 people annually. Sudden Cardiac Arrest can strike anyone of any age, anywhere, at any time, without warning. Most of these cardiac arrests take place outside of the hospital, happening in gatherings such as classrooms, schools, universities, and athletic events. Without immediate emergency response, victims of cardiac arrest only have minutes to live. For every minute that goes by without a defibrillating shock from an AED, the their chance of survival drops by 10%.
– SCA is the leading cause of death on school campuses
– SCA is the leading cause of death for student-athletes
– On average, SCA tragically takes the lives of between 7,000-10,000 American youth every year
We help schools and universities install life-saving AEDs, and often field questions about AEDs in all educational settings. How important is CPR? How much does an AED cost? How hard is an AED to maintain? Is my school required to have an AED? What AED features should my school consider? How many AEDs does my campus need? Read our guide on AED placement here.
Unit Training and Service Contracts are available for an additional cost. Please call a customer service representatives for more info.
