A Simple Device That Can Save a Life

by Allyson P. on Friday, November 22, 2013

You see AEDs on walls in airports, malls and office buildings, but do you see them in your kids schools?  On sports field or in rinks? The answer might be sadly no. We need to do better;  we need to make sure that AEDs are available in our schools and on our fields at all times so that it is never more than 90 seconds away. John, a dad who lost his son Michael to sudden cardiac arrest on a football field, says that the AED has to be a member of the team. It should always be on the bench and hopefully you will never have to need it.

Hear more from John and other advocates on why AEDs are so important, on a special episode of Moore from the Hill.
