What happens when a person suddenly becomes unresponsive due to a heart attack, drowning or other cardiac arrest situation? They need an AED machine – and quickly – that’s what!
Over the past couple of years, we have had the privilege of supplying AED (Automated External Defibrillator) machines to various organizations with monies they received from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation grant. These machines are the life-saving devices that restart the heart in a cardiac arrest event. It is crucial for all organizations to have one or more of these readily available for emergencies. Knowing how to administer CPR is also a must. CPR and AEDs go hand-in-hand; CPR buys time until the AED arrives and electrically restarts the heart. (Click HERE for CPR classes in Northeast Florida.)
Non-profit organizations such as schools, churches, city government and charity organizations can take advantage of the grant program. It is easy to apply for, and we can help.
We recently dropped our nine-year-old daughter off at North Florida Christian Service Camp in Keystone Heights, FL for camp and were gratified to see the AED devices that we recently supplied them through the grant money.
Contact us for help in obtaining this grant money for your organization. And, spread the word! Ask if your child’s school and your church have an AED machine…..find out if they have the correct number of AEDs for the size of their campus or facility. We can provide a recommendation for their facility. Tell them about us.
Pictured below is camp manager, Danny Slater, with one of their AED machines. Everyone should have the peace of mind I have, knowing that AEDs are available wherever their children are learning or playing. Remember, kids can have cardiac arrest events, too!
As a shout-out to North Florida Christian Service Camp, I cannot say enough about this camp and the life-changing things that happen there. I am an alumni of the camp myself and spent many glorious weeks of my childhood there….learning, forging friendships and making lasting decisions. I am so happy to send my daughter there now. She absolutely loves it! To learn more about NFCSC, click HERE.
