Restore the Beats

From Scott Murphy

Each year we lose nearly 7,000 young people to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) nationwide. The goal is to start getting these life saving devices in to preschools by providing at least 5 AEDs.

With students returning back to the classrooms, teachers, coaches and other faculty members must strive to create a safe environment for every child that walks through their doors. Having that responsibility is big, but creating a little peace of mind by implementing automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in schools is even bigger. When we lose nearly 7,000 young people to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) each year, it’s hard not to concern ourselves with the best way to respond should it strike during school hours. Not every school can afford to have emergency personnel on the premises, so having a life-saving source is key — especially when the AED is designed to walk any rescuer through defibrillation and CPR using voice prompts.

After 27 years as a Volunteer Firefighter, I have seen the increasing need for the community to have these life saving devices. Each year we lose nearly 7,000 young people to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) nation wide, it’s hard not to concern ourselves with the best way to respond should it strike during school hours. The goal of this project is to start getting these life saving devices in to daycares by providing at least 5 AEDs, with the forecasted goal that all schools/daycares have one on site.
