Your Donations are Truly Life Savers

Your Donations are Truly Life Savers

Because of your DONATIONS we can equip our first responders with these lives saving devices.

Immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation, with an automated external defibrillator (AED), can more than double a victim’s chance of survival. In fact, early defibrillation, along with CPR, is the only way to restore the victim’s heart rhythm to normal in a lot of cases of cardiac arrest.

For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, however, the chances of survival decrease by 7–10%.

We have AED’s in all our Rescue Vehicles and most of our First responders carry them, again made possible by your generous donations…
