The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation's Greater Los Angeles Affiliate encompasses five counties in southern California. It is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.
We are committed to raising awareness, growing the SCA Survivor Network, and spreading the word about the importance of early CPR and easy access to automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for victims of sudden cardiac arrest.
"As a parent of child who suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest and survived, I know firsthand the importance of AEDs and quick response. As an advocate for legislation, education and AED programs in schools and other public places, my goal is to raise awareness and education of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and the importance of lifesaving measures, including AED implementation and training as an integral part of a school's health and safety curriculum," says Allison Gingold, Greater Los Angeles Affiliate coordinator.
The Greater Los Angeles Affiliate focuses especially on raising funding, education, legislative advocacy, and other comprehensive programming for AED implementation and safety.
