AEDs in Schools

"I've lived through saving a life with an AED on a school campus, and to imagine an alternative outcome had we not had the AED, is absolutely unbearable. To me, having AEDs readily available is an obvious necessity, not a nice-to-have. School campuses are comprised of not only students, but also teachers, admin, coaches, support staff, and spectators of all ages for after school sports and activities. The thought of losing any life that could be saved, is a tragedy in itself. When I see an AED, I see a life saved. A family saved. Friends and colleagues saved. A community saved."
