Schools Campaign

You Can Save a Life at SchoolWe see it in the news far too often: A student is at football practice, or playing lacrosse, or just walking to class when he suddenly collapses and dies from sudden cardiac arrest. When a tragedy like this happens, people often think there’s nothing they can do. But there is.


Campus Campaign

Colleges are microcosms of the community at large. As such, they should be prepared to prevent death and disability from SCA among students, staff and visitors. This includes ensuring that AEDs are strategically placed on campus and with athletic teams.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden cardiac arrest affects more than 1,000 people outside hospitals each day in the U.S. and only 10 percent survive. When bystanders provide CPR and use automated external defibrillators before EMS arrives, about 40 percent of victims survive. If the national survival rate increased to 40 percent, about 100,000 additional people could be saved each year. Read more.
