Funding for AED Placement Eliminated in President’s Budget

Placing more AEDs in rural areas and small communities will help save lives; however, funding for a program that does just that is completely eliminated in President Obama’s recent budget proposal.

Join us in calling on Congress to restore funding for the Rural and Community Access to Emergency Devices Program.  It is critical that constituents like you express how important this funding is to communities that otherwise cannot make the investment necessary to protect their citizens from sudden cardiac arrest.   Send a quick, personalized email to your legislators right now!
