2014 AED Grant Program For Schools

Heart Avengers is an AED grant program offered through HeartSine Technologies and Parent Heart Watch designed to provide schools in the United States with the opportunity to receive an automated external defibrillator (AED) for their facilities.  Designed to prevent Sudden Cardiac Death, an AED is a medical device that quickly analyzes the heart’s rhythm and safely delivers an electric shock in the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
