When Seconds Count – AED Initiative

AED Grants are available May 1, 2021 to June 11, 2021. Check below for more information.


Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a heart attack. A heart attack can lead to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). The only treatment for SCA is defibrillation from an automated external defibrillator (AED). A shock from the AED stops the chaotic electrical activity and allows the heart’s sinus node to resume a normal electrical impulse.
