If someone went into cardiac arrest at your organization, would you be prepared? During Heart Month, February 2020, CMH is giving away the funds to purchase two Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to local organizations who can tell us why they should have an AED on site. #communityfirstaid
February is recognized as American Heart Month. During February 2020, enter to win $1,300 toward the purchase of AED equipment for your organization.
More than 356,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCAs) happen in the United States every year. In a 2018 study, use of AEDs by bystanders of OHCAs was associated with better survival and functional outcomes. CMH wants to help with this — with more AEDs and training available, there may be further improved outcomes of OHCAs.
Enter to win by filling out this survey and telling us (in 250 words or less) why having an AED on site at your organization would be helpful. Winners will be chosen by the leadership of the WomenHeart of the North Oregon Coast heart disease support group in March 2020 and announced at their April 2020 meeting.
