Do you know if there is an AED available for use in your child’s school? According to a survey conducted by Orlando Sentinel, “Every Central Florida School has at least one automated external defibrillator on campus.”

If an emergency is to present itself in the classroom, gymnasium or on an athletic field, lives can be saved by having an AED nearby and ready for use.

Schools can dramatically increase the safety of students by purchasing an AED. Any school looking to prevent an unnecessary death from sudden cardiac arrest can take the simple step of purchasing a low-cost AED to help save lives against one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
