This October, during Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month, the non-profit PulsePoint Foundation is rewarding communities for identifying and registering AEDs.
Each AED registered from October 1 through 31 will gain you an entry to win one of ten $500 Amazon gift cards. Collectively, the community that registers the most AEDs will be granted $5,000 worth of new AEDs to provide to public safety staff or place in underserved parts of your community.
AEDs must be registered through the free PulsePoint AED app or online at AED.new. After verification, those AEDs are then added to the PulsePoint AED Registry to be shared with bystanders and 911 dispatchers during a cardiac emergency. The globally accessible PulsePoint AED Registry currently includes more than 126,000 AEDs. There is no cost to the community or public safety department to use the PulsePoint AED Registry.
