|It's not too late to protect vital AED funding in the United States! A proposal has been set that currently cuts all funding for the Rural and Community Access to Emergency Devices Program. Today, we're asking you to tell your Member of Congress to reject the proposal and help ensure better survival of sudden cardiac arrest in this country.|
The Rural and Community Access to Emergency Devices Program works by providing grants to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to rural areas and small communities that otherwise would not have the means to obtain the life-saving devices.
Contact your Member of Congress today to let them know that this program deserves proper resources committed to it. You can determine your Member of Congress and their contact information by logging on to www.congress.org and entering your ZIP code in the top right hand box.
