Success Stories

Outstanding ease of use, reliability and services from the AED leader

Surviving sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is largely dependent on response time. In many communities across the country, and around the world, citizens have joined forces with their municipal leaders and public safety officials to establish public access defibrillation (PAD) programs, allowing volunteer lay responders to treat SCA victims in the first vital minutes before Emergency Services arrive.
