CPR & AED Training Program

An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable medical device that safely delivers electrical energy to the heart to keep blood circulating during cardiac arrest. An AED actually reads the heart rhythms of the victim and delivers a shock only if symptoms dictate.

Ideally, any business, organization or place of public assembly would benefit from an AED. They are small, yet effective, and can be used by anyone with only minimal training. Intervention within the first four-to-six minutes can mean the difference between life and death for a heart attack victim.
