ANNOUNCEMENT / PRESS RELEASE
As a 911 organization and/or professional that is committed to sudden cardiac arrest survivability, you understand the life-saving potential of AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) and the need to increase their visibility to the community to locate them during an emergency.
This October, during Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month, the non-profit PulsePoint Foundation is rewarding communities for identifying and registering AEDs.
Each AED registered from October 1 through 31 will gain you an entry to win one of ten $500 Amazon gift cards. Also, the community that registers the most AEDs collectively will be granted $5,000 towards the purchase of new AEDs from PulsePoint.
AEDs must be registered through the free PulsePoint AED app or online at AED.new. After verification, those AEDs are then added to the PulsePoint AED Registry to be shared with bystanders and 911 dispatchers during a cardiac emergency. The globally accessible PulsePoint AED Registry currently includes more than 126,000 AEDs. There is no cost to participate in and use the PulsePoint AED Registry.
