Purchase a home defibrillator (AED)
AED’s have become increasingly prominent in and across America for their proven ability to save lives. Part of the success of AED’s is their ease of use, even by untrained lay-people. Having a home AED means not having to burn valuable minutes waiting for EMS to arrive.
