LifeNet AED Loaner Program
LifeNet’s AED Loaner Program allows area nonprofits the opportunity to check-out a loaner AED for business and community events at no cost. The borrower will, however, need to view a short tutorial video on how to safely operate the equipment and spend practice time with a LifeNet educator. Additionally, a $250 deposit is required. The deposit will be refunded when the AED is returned.
What is an AED?
An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a small, lightweight device that can recognize irregular heart rhythms, also known as Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). AEDs work by delivering electricity to the heart when someone is in SCA, which means the heart is not pumping blood through the body effectively and blood is not carrying oxygen to those parts of the body that need it.
LifeNet Matching Fund Program
If you’re interested in purchasing an AED for your business or organization, LifeNet also offers a Matching Fund Program to help provide AEDs throughout the community.
