Sheriff’s Safety Town Gets AED Donation

Photo by John Lee

AEDs — or Automated External Defibrillators — save lives. That’s why the recently-formed local chapter of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association has just donated one to Sheriff’s Safety Town. Chapter spokeswoman Calli Blount says, when a person’s heart stops, seconds count. She says studies have shown that if an AED is readily available within the first five minutes of someone going into sudden cardiac arrest, that person’s chance of survival is 90-percent. After that, the rate of survival drops 10-percent with each passing minute. Blount says the non-profit organization’s goal is to raise as much money as possible to place AEDs throughout the community and to increase public awareness of sudden cardiac arrest, its prevention, and treatments for those at risk.
